Grafting Haas to a dwarf hybrid-fruit cocktail Avocado?

I have two new small grafted avocado trees (about 4 ft). One is a reg. Haas supposed to get 25ft or so. The other is a dwarf mexican hybrid (not sure what exactly) got it at Lowes.. supposed to get about 8ft tall. I wanted to take some cuttings of the Haas and graft onto some of the dwarf hybrid's branches (gonna give the Haas tree to my MIL). I think it might be good for pollination but will the Haas grafts be too vigorous and take over the other hybrid tree?
Anyone tried a fuit cocktail avocado to save space or get multiple varieties on the same tree? I would like to hear your thoughts or experiences. Thanks

I have a few different multi grafted trees but no avocados though. But it is very clear that some varieties are much more vigorous than others. But that's why we got pruners and shears. Its a good space saving method, you can always start to heavily prune the Hass if it starts taking over.

Thanks eggo, that's kinda what I figured. Heard you could also plant 2 in one hole to help with pollination.
There are now flower buds on the Hass~Yippee!!
Does anyone know if it is okay to cut the top off avocado trees to manage size and get more branches?
