Yes, #10 is a stumper(to quote Shap).

However, a whole slew of correct lists: Selma in San Diego, Jane, Hal9000, and Barfle, all of whom got 10/10!

Honorable mention to Violinist4ever, who has gotten 7/10 so far. With Schmeelkie's claim of 9/10, she'll get the official congrats when she pm's me her list. :D

Whilst pondering #10, I submit the following:

Relocate a source of lighting, two who are named for the graciousness of, and consecration to, God.
Altoid - curiously strong.

Wow, I'm not sure about the rest of it, but me dear Piqaboo also scores 100%!

And, in answer to your pm, according to my lookup, zenith and acme are more similar than opposite.
