Timewarps on Subclips when transferring to DaVinci Resolve via AAF

Hi everyone, first time post for me.

I stumbled upon an issue concerning data exchange between Avid MC and DaVinci Resolve for conforming.

Sometimes when footage was shot with 50FPS for example, editors want to have it synched with sound (if there is any).
So what happens is, that an assistant Editor applies a timwarp (200%) on the Video Master Clip, syncs it with the audio file and generates a subclip. This method works well up to a point where you want to transfer an edit to DaVinci Resolve to online the whole thing. (for the editing process the footage was converted from ProRes4444 to DNxHD36)

An AAF File doesn't seem to transport the information that there is a timewarp applied to the footage and it has to done by hand. It's not a problem when there are only a couple of them but if you have a sequence with minutes of those it takes hours to do it.

So my question is:
Is there a way to make this easier? I am thinking of something like the option "commit multicam edits" when dealing with group clips. Some option to promote the embedded timewarps to usual timewarps or motion FX.
Is there another Effect that I could use in MC instead of timewarp to prevent that problem?

I hope you will understand what I am talking about as I am not a native english speaker (German)
