I think that's nice idea. I can probably work on that. The only question 
is if we would like to have this generic way as additional feature, or 
we really want to use it instead of the SSL_CLIENT_SAN_otherName_n as 
proposed by Jan.

I think that the common cases should have non-generic variable. The 
question is if otherName is the common case.
