I had a similar problem:
I believe the Moscow MD does NOT turn into a Front at any time.
That being said, it is still a worthwhile repository for units that are going to stick around Moscow for 'collapse of defense" defense. You might set their TOEs lower, or you might move divisions into the MD and then on to other places as necessary.
If you need those units in other fronts because the Moscow MD is immobile, then transfer them. The Soviets have a much cheaper cost for moving divisions (which is a complaint of mine, but not one anyone else seems to object to).
