No, I don't think that is possible. Adam's spec reveals a lot of extra
information that "document.cookie" does not return. For example, it exposes
domain and expiry information.
But, I think your point was that it would be possible to simulate an
asynchronous API on top of a synchronous one. I agree that is possible, but
it would not perform very well.
