I would not invest work in improving the palette animations for the
following reasons:

* Right now, we have two different palettes implementations. The old, based
in Gtk.Menu,
used only when we need submenus (Journal, Clipboard) and the new.
Was proposed remove the old implementation [1]
* The palette code is a nightmare, and now Gtk have the popovers,
that provide a similar functionality [2]
* There are a lot of bugs related to palettes [3]
* Popovers will implement animations [4]
* We can remove a lot of code. Remove code is better than write code :)

If I had free cpu cycles, I would invest in research if is possible theme
Gtk popovers to look as our palettes, and if there are any limitation
than could be a blocker.
