AFAIK there is no need to bleed it. Any bubbles should work themselves out quickly while running or within a few seconds after shutting down, when the entire system drains back into the pan.

This sig may return, some day.

^ I second that. I've done dozens of transmission fluid exchanges on cars at several jobs and I've never once had a problem. The cooler lines typically drain back into the pan so they seldom see more than a few PSI and lines and cooler can be cheaper.
