NOTE! I made this into a separate thread so that it wouldn't be lost under
the original thread. I felt this was important, since it's been a couple
weeks from the original post.

Here's a trick you might try....

You currently have two separate links for the "Speed" gift. One that is
mirrored and the other that is user-selectable for the champion. Make the
user-selectable link simply select via a script the link that is mirrored.
The user-selectable link would need to map to a different option for this
to work, and it would ideally be assigned a "show" state of "design". This
way, everything ought to work exactly as you want it to.

You could also invert the above logic. The mirrored link would simply
auto-select the user-selectable link within the champion. Then you could
have the mirrored link be hidden, so the user only ever sees the one link.
If the option is taken in the parent unit, the child mirrors it, which
forces selection of the alternate option within the child.

Hope this helps,
