**Summary: ** Let $n\geqslant 1$ and let $c_{F,G}$ be given real
numbers defined for all
pairs of disjoint subsets $F,G\subset\{1,\dots,n\}$. We characterize
commuting $n$-tuples of operators $T=(T_1,\dots,T_n)$ acting on a Hilbert
space $H$ which have a commuting unitary dilation $U=(U_1,\ldots,U_n)\in
B(K)^n$, $K\supset H$ such that $P_HU^{*\beta}U^\alpha |_H=
c_{\supp\alpha,\,\supp\beta} T^{*\beta}T^\alpha$ for all
$\alpha,\beta\in\mathbb{Z}_+^n,
\supp\,\alpha\cap\supp\,\beta=\emptyset$. This unifies and
generalizes the concepts of $\rho$-dilations of a single operator and of
regular unitary dilations of commuting $n$-tuples. We discuss also other
interesting cases.
