I can't remember which reloading animation it was, but one of them had the head move while reloading. I know its possible anyway because I've done it myself.

For my suggestion, how about when reloading, making the head of the player move. For example while loading the thompson: Head of player focus' on left hand pulling the bolt back, then follows the hand to the magazine, to the new magazine and finally the bolt again. When I mean head, I mean so your view is centered on the magazine/hand/bolt, like in real life when loading a weapon. A real soldier doesn't look forward when trying to find his magazine.

I think it would add a unique touch to FH that no other games currently feature. It isn't very time consuming either. If the FH team wanted I'd make them a prototype.

It's the MG34 animation. I find it a little annoying though.

I think it's cool. It's very realistic. Maybe Killi Vanilli will make more of these animations. Who knows!

I'm not 100% sure how it was with the WW2 era weapons, but I'd bet that if the soldier has had any training at all, he doesn't look at his hands when he reloads. I guess it's easier with modern weapons, but I can easily reload while moving and looking down the sight at the same time. It's all basic training with the weapon. I'd say the only justification for this would be that the player picks up an enemy weapon and is not trained to use it, hence having to pay attention to how it's reloaded... But this would be pretty confusing and basically useless work.
