Mixing Agile Approaches

Dear PM community,

the PMI Agile Practice Guide states on page 31 the project specific blending of agile practices. The Scrum Guide issued November 2017 by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland stipulates on page 19 that "Scrum's roles, events, artifacts and rules are immutable" and "Scrum a container for other techniques, methodologies, and practices".

In this context, it appears to me that the mixing of XP techniques with scrum makes sense as indicated in the Practice Guide and it also fits with the Scrum Guide definitions, as the Scrum Guide defines itself a framework that does not define any specific techniques to be used.

But how about roles? The DSDM Agile Project Framework describes a broader set of roles and states "that DSDM is often used to provide the full "project" focus to complement Scrum's team focussed product development process.

What practical experience (bad or good) do we have in our community about this specific topic that can be shared and learned from? Is the Scrum Guide definition on roles too dogmatic restrictive or does it make sense to stick to it?

My intention is to encourage people to search more, not to keep what i wrote without searching about it. Time ago Heidi Araya published the best I read:
