Default How to delay-compensate this scenario?

I am using UAD cards, so I have to care about plugin delay compensation and I don't have a solution for this - very common - scenario:
- 1 audio track
- 1 aux track
- a send of the audio track routes to the aux track
- the aux track has a delaying plugin inserted
=> the aux track's signal comes late by the amount of the plugin delay.

The only workaround that comes to my mind is duplicating the audio track, inserting the plugin on the second track, delaying the first audio track by the plugin delay amount (e.g. Time adjuster) and adjusting the mix of those two with the track faders instead of the send fader (which is not used anymore).

The root of my problem is that sends are post-insert (good!) and I have no chance anymore to delay this track's signal (other that routing this to a bus and delaying that one, which I think is way oversized).

How do you delay-compensate this scenario?
