We don't yet have any way to change keyboard focus to the palette tooldrawer, but we have since added the ability to set keyboard shortcuts for intermediate menus. That means you can set a keyboard shortcut for any styles menu and then use autocomplete or arrowkeys to apply the desired style. I have Command + PS set for Format > Paragraph Style and Command + CS set for the Character Style menu, and find it quite handy.

Of course that doesn't obviate the desire to throw focus to the palettes, but for this specific use case, things have improved.
