So you have tried polishing? More aggressive polish? Different pads? Orbital polisher (porter cable or flex)? Multiple steps? Compounding?

There's a lot you can do, and after all it seems to be just a small etching in the clearcoat after water drying/being stuck on a spot for too long. I don't see how a light polish applied by hand or an orbital wouldn't remove this. Even if it doesn't, a more aggressive polish (with an orbital), in maybe a couple of steps, should remove this as well.

I've had some pretty serious looking scratches on my truck from tree branches and lord knows what else, and a light polish with the right pad and pressure, followed by a finishing polish and a coat of sealant made the scratches pretty much invisible... I just can't imagine that you've tried everything possible.
