Wiring question (is it possible?)

So I recently became a proud owner of an ibanez S570mqm. It's an awesome guitar! I want to put some dimarzios in it. I also want to replace the current knobs with push pull knobs that will do the following (and this is where it gets tricky.) I want the volume knob to split the neck and bridge pickups. I want the tone knob to remove the the middle pickup from the circuit and allow me to get the middle position to select both outside pickups (whether they are split or not) and possibly get the 2 in between settings to select those pickups in out of phase settings. Sort of my attempt at creating a swiss army guitar of sorts. Not sure if it's doable with just two push pulls and a 5 way but i'd prefer not to mess with any additional switches. Any suggestions? Better yet anyone have a wiring diagram for such a monstrosity?
