and every withdrawal could be some combination of all three?

If you have non-deductible contributions, pre-tax/deductible contributions and earnings in your universe of IRA holdings, every withdrawal IS a combination of all three. That's true even if you aren't withdrawing from an account that actually had non-deductible contributions, as every IRA withdrawal is based on your overall IRA holdings, not the holdings in a particular account.

Form 8606 (which should have been filed when the first non-deductible contribution was made) is for 'keeping track'.
