The Oracle® Trading Community Architecture, Administration Guide (Release 12 - Part No. B25894-01) states that you cannot reuse phrases that are already defined in the same relationship type with the same subject and object type combination.

But in the above situation, the subject type and object type are different.  One is Organization to Organization, another is Person to Person.
