The redundancy factor is applied to the entire building not each line of resistance. Even along the height of the structure, if you notice, the UBC, in calculating the "r max" factor, considers the highest "r" for lower two third of the height of the building. In the IBC, even this was eliminated and the highest r along the entire height of the building should be used in calculating Rho for all levels. The only break is given when you determine the force level in each direction. In that case, you may have different rhos for each direction of loading.
