Hi Matthias,

You can just add several rules that all apply at the same time (e.g. two 
times an empty rule only bound by map scale ranges).

In the placement options use one time "above line", and the other time " 
below line".

This works fine. See screenshot at 

The workaround with font-markers from Matthieu works fine, but it is 
ugly that the labels can be up-side-down.
