The verbosity is easy to handle:

  \property Staff.TimeSignature \set #'style = #'C
  \time 4/4;

  \property Staff.TimeSignature \set #'style = #'default
  \time 4/4;

  \property Staff.TimeSignature \set #'style = #'1style
  \time 3/4;

Include these definitions and all other's you need in a separate 
.ly file that you could include in all the scores where you want

There have been a number of complaints that it was impossible to
have numbers in identifier names, I'm not sure if that's has been
fixed yet, otherwise you'd of course want to name the macros
\time44 \time3, and so on.
