There really isn't an easy way to do this through spamassassin's scoring.  
Basically a hit against a single RBL counts as a single rule hit and you can
only hit a rule once.  I don't think it's that critical to have multiple hits, 
since most people are setting the scores high enough that a single hit is enough.

I think your case is valid and you may consider bringing it up on the 
spamassassin-dev list to see if they are handling this differently in 3.0.
