As I pointed out previously I have two plants of fortuniana and is starting to grow as described by Paul. Some years back I saw a plant of fortuniana growing on a fence at Ross Roses that was about 7ft tall and 15ft wide.

John I am not sure about fortuniana but with multiflora the usual practice is to throw the top of the newly graphed rose away when you remove it.

The above is from the first page of this thread Paul, I would guess John went to the budding class at Swiss and got his 'fortuniana' there.

As fro the size of the plants I would guess the one's John saw had been cut back for new rootstocks IMO. Most of the roses that are used for rootstocks tend to get tall/leggy, that is in their nature, also that is how standard/weeper roses are achieved. As for the tops after the union has taken, yes, normally the top is just thrown out, with your fortuniana stock I would pot it up and see if it takes, in that way you will have some extra rootstock to play with.
