Yes. In fact, it is (will be, just like unreviewed docs are now)
a view on the *existance* of rows, not on the content of the rows

The latter.

Yes, later or if someone comes up with a patch for the view.

That's how it works. Double-clicking "unsigned documents" takes you
to the document tree sorted by review status, unreviewed on top. The
item also says for which patient docs are available and activates the
patient if necessary.

That's surely something desirable but needs doing in some later iteration.

Allowing the inbox to be filtered to the active patient vs all patients
is something I might actually consider for 0.2.9, seems easy enough.

I'd make it a radiobox selection above the item list just like the
sort mode selector in the document tree. From that it's immediately
