Currently I do not see a rainbow gradient...

No it is not possible. Gradients in LO can have only one start color and one end color, and LO steps linear in each color of the RGB color model from start to end. You would need a step in the hue angle of the HSB color model. But there exist currently no way in ODF to describe such in the file.

Workaround: You can use a small rainbow picture as background and set it to expand to the shape edges.

Maybe someone can add this to the feature request ?

@Oren: first ODF needs to be changed, and it would be good to have a change after many years.

Applications have to implement it as extended feature. And when two applications have this feature, then it is likely that it will be included in the next version of ODF. So it is worth to write a feature request, and get not only LibreOffice but others too to implement it. BTW, Corel Draw has it in its propriety format.
