Picking a particular IP address is confined as an admin only operation since it poses a potential problem for collisions
Allow user to pick IP preferred address
It would be nice if users could pick IP address for their VM from
available IP range when instantiating new VM.
This way they could delete old VM and create new one without
having to deal with DNS changes or anything like that.

I agree, this would be a nice feature, especially if a rebuild of the same VM is planned. Maybe an option to "Retain IP for future use"?
This can be achieved using reservations. A user can reserve a pool of IPs (can be only one IP) creating a reservation, and assign it to a particular VM. This functionality can be achieved using the user view, and not the Cloud View.
This is out of the scope of the normal vOneCloud workflow, although it can be achieved accessing to the appliance through the terminal and configuring the sunstone view files. If this is the case, probably you would be looking to use OpenNebula rather than vOneCloud.
