As you know, I'll always vote for the less verbose option ;-)

I acknowledge that this is the proper way of modeling it in RDF.

Turtle has good syntax for lists, and implementing R2RML doesn't really require any clever RDF-level processing of the mapping file, so in our case the pain should be manageable.

If you're violently opposed to lists, then how about the last option I mentioned:

  [] rr:parentTriplesMap <#TriplesMap1>;
     rr:join "col1,col1", "col2,col2";

This keeps the columns that are being checked *very* close to each other ;-)
