Looks like the community (more specifically Anthony Chu) has already taken a stab at this. Please see the following article (https://anthonychu.ca/post/cosmosdb-real-time-azure-functions-signalr-service/) and GitHub repo (https://github.com/Azure/azure-functions-signalrservice-extension) for details of his implementation.
Your feedback on whether this satisfies your scenarios would be appreciated.
I’ve gotten a few questions about this item recently, so I just wanted to give a more detailed status. We still have this on the backlog; it hasn’t been forgotten. But we don’t have a clear timeline for when we would get to it right now. The “unplanned” status just means that it can’t be tied to a timeline, but we do think this is a valid request that we would like to have in the product.
Work for this feature has been started. Will update here when this feature becomes generally available.

Ts the underlying capability has been completed, is there any ETA on this?
Update on this item.
Bytecode implementation is now targeting the first half of 2020 to provide stability and performance improvements in the platform.

ETA, please? Or maybe early access to partners?
