social security number
The GEDCOM 5.5 specs show an SSN tag under the individual attribute structure.However I found by trial and error that alsothough it can be imported, what is later exported is something else.

For example, with the following as input:
1 SSN 012-34-5678
PAF4.04 accepts it as during import but creates an event structure and logs a message stating that further editing is needed.
On output with no further changes, the new GEDCOM sequence that appears is:
1 EVEN 012-34-5678
2 TYPE SSN
I would have expected that if PAF accepted the tag as shown in the spec suring import, it would have created the same thing on export.
What is the proper and normally accpetable way to include social security numbers?I want to include them for those cases where my source includes the SSDI data.
