The menkyo kaiden is more likely to have been equated to 8th dan. The M-K gave a student a licence/obligation to teach off their own bat and possibly go forth and teach. 8th Dan was the rank given to the people sent out to spread aikido accross the world..

There's a longer list of "tenth dans" on aikidofaq..
