I don't think interchange has any built in logic for this. 

We run into this issue all the time since we sell a lot of small packs
and case quantity items.   You can, of course, limit the item to case
quantity only and then an order of 1 is actually a case of 6 and
indicate such to the customer.  But if you want to sell singles as well
as cases and give different prices for different combinations then I
think you'll have to whip something up yourself.

We use some Javascript in the page to force the customer to choose a
specific quantity (usually a modulo remainder of the base count) and
then we also check the items in the cart and ensure they fit into the
ordering rules we have setup.  It's not to difficult to setup, but it
does take some coding and a little planning.
