[NAFEX] grafting with rootstock breaking dormancy

As I have only 1 year grafting experience, I have a question regarding using
rootstock that has broken dormancy - does it have much effect on the success
of the grafts that the rootstocks are no longer dormant, provided the
scionwood is still well dormant?
Would chip grafting prove better than whip and toungue in this case, or
would either work about equally?
We have plum (prunus americana) and cherry rootstock (krymsk-5) that has
just started to break, as well as a few OHF 333 pear rootstocks we dug quite
awhile ago. We still have plenty of pear and apple rootstocks that are
still dormant, however. And there are plum, cherry, and pear scions
expected shortly . . .
