A small but handy feature for the media library could be an custom right-click menu. When a user would like to delete an asset, currently they need to click the asset and look for the red colored link "delete permanently".

If we could right-click on an asset, it would give us some options including "delete"option.
For the end-user, it will save time on deleting images, doing some actions ( needs to be specified) and it will give the user an innovative experience aswell.

Example UI :

This ticket was discussed during today's accessibility bug-scrub: the team agreed to point out a custom contextual menu wouldn't be fully accessible as it would be only available to mouse / touch users.

The underlying issue is valid though, to some extent. Maybe worth considering alternate options. For example: leveraging the "Bulk select" mode that is used in the Media Library and make it work also in the media modal.

The idea here, of improving the media library management tools to give better feature parity and some desirable user tools is great; I'm closing this because we won't be pursuing a custom context menu, but have opened a new ticket to start developing other ideas for improving that interface.
