rest position, polyphony

I'm setting polyphonic vocal music.
Same noteheads from different voices are engraved on the same place. This is ok.
Same rests are not. Bad for me.
\version "2.11.22"
TenorOneNotes = \relative c' { c4 d e a, | d2   r }
TenorTwoNotes = \relative c' { a4 b c a  | gis2 r }
  \new Staff
   \clef "G_8"
   \set Staff.instrumentName = \markup{ \column {"Т1. " "Т2. "} }
   \new Voice = "T1" { \voiceOne \TenorOneNotes }
   \new Voice = "T2" { \voiceTwo \TenorTwoNotes }
  \layout {} 
To have rests printed on the same place, I modify source notes in this way :
TenorOneNotes = \relative c' { c4 d e a, | d2   b\rest }
TenorTwoNotes = \relative c' { a4 b c a  | gis2 s }
This is not convenient for me, because it prevents to produce different versions of music (ex: swapping 1st and 2nd voice).
Would you know another way to get rests merged without introducing layout tricks in the music ?
Thanks in advance
