It's a bit harder to overfill the trans with the bottom-fill pans.... Asymetrical jacking won't alter the level much as the fill port is on the centerline... You could try it with the front of the car much higher than the rear (assuming the fill port is towards the front of of the pan).

But using the mityvac fluid pump to fill the trans should give you enough time to complete the fill before temps get too high. And remember, you are adding cold fluid which lowers the temp a little as you fill (although you don't add much at this point in the fill process).
