(CC’ing the IPT list as this might be an IPT specific thread - http://lists.gbif.org/mailman/listinfo/ipt <http://lists.gbif.org/mailman/listinfo/ipt>)
For clarification - is your question specific to the DwC-A standard which is possible as Alex says or is it specific to the IPT tool please?
Do you imagine a scenario where you’d effectively map the same extension 2 times - once to interpreted and once to verbatim - or do you envisage a different data schema for each?

Both GBIF and iDigBio do this when generating downloads for various reasons (RIGHTS & LICENSE files, additional EML metadata, etc). However, I do not believe it is possible to do this within IPT. You might submit an issue on the IPT issue tracker (https://github.com/gbif/ipt/issues <https://github.com/gbif/ipt/issues>) for potential inclusion of this feature in a future version of IPT.

For instance, including an additional Occurrence file with the values as JSON in dynamicProperties or in some other verbatim format in the occurrenceRemarks field. Both of those would at least give some method of single-row access (vs joining multiple measurementOrFacts to a single event id) if that is the primary concern, even if they would require additional parsing steps to be useful.
