CLD Help for CA Commands lists Subject DN out of order on USG60W - probably others

In shell, issuing the following command :
ca generate x509 name certname cn-type ip cn 123.123.123.123 ? 
yields the following help : 
c<br>key-type<br>l<br>o<br>ou<br>s<br>usr-def<br>
However, if you try to create a certificate or request in this order it generates the following error : 

% (after '"&lt;something&gt;"'): Parse error<br>retval = -1<br>ERROR: Parse error/command not found!

The correct sequence is :

ou<br>o&nbsp;<br>l&nbsp;<br>s&nbsp;<br>c&nbsp;<br>key-type<br>usr-def<br>
Two things would really help in the command line help, here : 
  1. list the Subject DN's in the correct order/sequence
  2. Add a hint to what the DN code is. For example, typing :
    ca generate x509 name &lt;name&gt; cn-type ip cn &lt;ipv4address&gt; ?
    currently generates the help :
    "&lt;name&gt;"<br>&lt;name&gt;
    which does not help illuminate what the letter designation is. I'd rather see something useful like :
    "&lt;country_name&gt;"<br>&lt;country_name&gt;
Obviously I have figured this out, and others likely have, too, but it would have saved a ton of time, and will be helpful during those long, late night episodes when the brain is already foggy.
