That still uses each predicate only once.

Another approach is to model these general relationships in a different way 
from the more specific ones. Model the relationship explicitly (as a node):

C1 ex:relation _:rel1 .
C2 ex:relation _:rel1 .
_:rel1 ex:comment "blah blah" .

where, say

ex:relation rdfs:range ex:Relationship .

then you can say anything you want about each specific relationship.

More concrete examples might help.
