Will it be possible to convert the root SharePoint site (https://contoso.sharepoint.com/) into a hub site?

great question! We are looking into options for the root site, but don't yet have details to share. Adding @Dave Cohen (US) + @DC Padur for thoughts as well.

Yes, it is possible to make the root site a hub site.

It would be great to be able to convert the root site collection into something more useful.  Being restricted to a Team Site template albeit with modern pages is a start but falls short compared to a dedicated Communications site. 

 

And I really don't want to turn on publishing infrastructure and craft a custom master page.

Just having an option of adding the comm site template to an existing Team site (top nav) would be enough for me. Waiting on that feature, we all love the top nav. vs. quick launch on the left. Always used to oslo over seattle :).
