[NAFEX] What's (problematically) compatible with pear?

The compatibility  can be very complicated:
E.g. in Northern Germany Prunus root stock "Colt" is doing well for 
but in most other parts of Germany it isn't very positive.

Many Pears are possible on Quince root stock, but some Pears are only 
possible with a second compatible Pear in between.

Peach "Hales Early"  does not grow on  "Myrobalan B" root stock.
The Plum root stock "Brompton" is growing well with "Hales Early" and 
also with "Myrobalan B".
But "Myrobalan B" root stock and then "Brompton" and finally "Hales 
Early" is impossible.

Only the Japanese Plum "Beauty" is possible with Almond. Most other 
Japanese Plums are not possible.

Most Peaches are possible on Plum "Marianne" root stock. But opposite 
direction is impossible.

Usually Japanese Plums do well on European Plums, but not in the other 

In Germany Sorbus domestica grafting is not a big deal, but in America 
it seems to be much less successful.

A very known book in EU is stating, some Carya are possible on Juglans 
nigra root stock, but unfortunately this may be wrong.(???)

Let me add finally, that the mentioned walnut orchards in California 
with the peculiar looking trees,
(the bottom portion of the bole is a smaller diameter than the upper 
one) are producing exactly with this portion
a high priced  wood which is appreciated very much.
