AFAIK {moch} has never been used in canon. 

Okrand refers to "someone of higher rank in the Klingon social, political, or military hierarchy" (TKD 43).  Is this a {moch}?

Note the verb {nIv} "be superior".

(KGT 110-11):  [{qutluch patlh}] means hierarchical structure. The kut'luch is a knife associated with Klingon assassins, so the imagery is one of a list, presumably in a specific order, of intended victims of the kut'luch. To determine one's place in Klingon society or to understand who has authority over whom, one must be aware of the {qutluch patlh} of the military, the government, the house with which one is associated, and so on.
