Should I understand this to mean Victor more often sees "palette"
used incorrectly for "palate"?  On that, I agree.  That's why I saw
"pallet" (which I read as n.2, sense 4.c, "a platform on which goods
can be moved [etc.]", although there are a number of other, here less
probable, meanings) as possibly interesting.
