I notice that the file containing the SSN ontology is called ssn.owl and the content is serialized in Turtle.
I understand that Protégé likes to call everything *.owl, but this suffix confuses other processors.
I believe Protege will also cope with .ttl.
Most tools and systems map the suffix to a format, rather than a content model.

Can I suggest we follow the wider convention and stick with a suffix matching the file format - i.e. rename
