    Our MOC traditionally designates a principle nominee. If one of the applicants has a LOA in hand already, could the MOC put the LOA applicant below the top line (principle), thereby ensuring 2 appointments?
    Another words, the MOC's principle nominee gets in AND the LOA applicant gets in as long as he/she is listed somewhere on the slate of 10, even though the MOC designates a different principle?

    Yes. In fact this is considered normal. The LOA recipient will end up being charged somewhere else, normally to having come off the "national wait list". It's a "sly" way for a MOC to achieve just what you point out, 2 appointments instead of 1.
