[nafex] Amelanchier on apple?

Del Stubbs' recent post on his experimental orchard raised a question in my 
mind.
If some apple varieties will do OK on Amelanchier rootstocks, how about 
going the other way - Amelanchier on apple?
While my A.alnifolias sucker profusely, my A.obovata "Jennybelle" doesn't 
(or hasn't yet).  Currently, it looks as though it's going to be more of a 
small-tree type than a suckering bush.  Does anyone (Lon?) have a clue as 
to how well Amelanchier might work, grafted onto apple - either seedling or 
clonal rootstock?  Or, would I be better off trying to air-layer or root 
cuttings?
