How about this idea as a variation of the standard treble bleed on a pot:

Note: There would be one volume pot per pickup and a single standard tone control would be hanging off the output jack.
When you turn down the volume, resistance increases between the wiper and the outbound lug but decreases to the lug with the filter. So more signal goes to the filter, and back to the output.
Possible issue: volume pot is now a rheostat instead of a voltage divider. Impact? I have no idea... don't know enough about electronics to guess.
Would this work?
it would work somehow... but not as a volume control.
The pot must be grounded on one lug if you want it to lower the volume.
Now, a 220k + 1nF cap works fine as a standard treble bleed control: that's more or less what I have in my various Strats and Tele.
