Photoshop: Unify Layer Position/Visibility can not be automated

In our company, we use Photoshop a lot to create sprite animation for video games. This includes the usage of the animation feature. One problem we have encountered though is that it does not seem to be possible to automate the settings "Unify Layer Position" and "Unify Layer Visibility". We need these settings activated on every single layer in our files, and we always have to set them manually which is very tedious and costs a lot of time. It is not possible to record an action (despite the fact that the unify settings show up in the history) nor have our programmers found a way to set these flags via Java Script. Is there any way this can be done?

This should be fixed in the Photoshop CC (2015) update.
