something like this isn't implemented. I don't know your detailed  
setup, but maybe you can add the amount of the consumables to be just  
one, and request additional features with a second request for a  
RESTRING complex (which is bound to machines or queues with two  
different values). And for RESTRING, you have the "or" relation
