This sounds quite interesting!

I would look at the spot halo code, since it's the thing closest to volumetrics in blender now. You can look for the places the function renderspothalo is used, and replace it with a rendervolumetric function or so, to handle both spot halos and your volumetrics.

Also I think the raycasting approach is indeed the right approach, since it integrates the easiest with the rendering pipeline.
