Conform Audio (like FCP to STP)

Ran into a big problem today.
In FCP > STP, you can make picture edits and then conform the audio.
That cannot be done in PP > AU. (I use CS6.)
I'm having to rebuild 25 tracks of audio, because a 5 second sound bite needed to be removed.
I have googled everything. Searched the Creative Cow. Searched Adobe. Nothing.
I figured, bummer, but I can conform it using an EDL. Nope. Then I figured, I could conform it using a hand listed time code. Nope, because in Audition the file timecode is rewritten based on where it is in the sequence. Restating for clarity, Audio1 In(1:24:32:15) Out(1:24:37:13) and it is in the time line at 7:49:16. When I opened the Audio file in Audition the timecode then started at 7:49:16. Surely, I thought, there is a way to change the timecode read-out, but there is nothing in the manual, there is no video, there is nothing on the Cow.
So I'm rebuilding 3 days of audio work, because the Director wants 5 seconds of audio clipped from the middle.
