I just spent over an hour googling around as well as reading openssl 
docs to get a list of distinguished_name fields.  Both in their full 
form and abbreviated form.  All I fined are the common ones in examples.

And for the list above for SAN, how are they presented in the openssl 
cli/config.  Again, just not finding it.

My search foo is weak.

pointers greatly appreciated.
