If they have different properties, then the traditional solution is to 
create two different subclasses that inherit the shared properties from 
a base class. Why would this not work? Sounds much cleaner than having 
some "magic" that figures out which constraints to use under which context.

It would help to have specific instances and class definitions, to make 
sure we talk about the same problems. Can you provide some?
