Is there a way to have Adobe Audition auto-create tracks from CSV?

Doing some scratch recording for a video game tomorrow. We have a spreadsheet with all our dialog demarcated by role, level name etc. and then an "ID" column that looks like "DIALOGUE_SUPERJOE_WAREHOUSE_299_01". Is there a way to hand Audition a CSV or similar of those ID's and have it auto-create tracks with those names or do I have to manually name each track by hand?

The audition multitrack file format SESX is XML. I just opened Audition and created a few tracks with different names, and then opened the SESX file with a text editor and found the track names. You could probably just script something up to eat your CSV and then put those titles in the correct XML tags.

I ended up doing something hackier- I ended up writing a quick c# app that ate the CSV and then created a bunch of .wav files with the individual CSV item names. Then I just imported the .wavs as empty files into Audition.

But your way sounds a heckuva lot cleaner, I may try that for fun.
