In a competitive state, there can absolutely be strong candidates on the list of ten for each of the senators. Not uncommon for all 10 to get admitted.
Absolutely true, and admittedly it is a complex system that is different for each MOC. However, every one of those other 9 on the hypothetical list had to have another place to have their appointment charged. Only one appointment can be charged to each slate. There can be appointments to the others on the slate, but they cannot be charged to this slate and need another place to charge the appointment. So, if another name gets added to this list of 10 due to the LOA holder not applying for the nom, it still doesn't add another appointment, it only adds another nom. The appointment is the goal, not just having a nomination.
