      I've noticed that Anders Kierulf's SmartGo always escapes ":". I
      think that this is a good practice (and maybe should me made
      manditory). Without doing this, future extension to datatypes is
      possibly ambiguous. For example, the proposed FF[5] change to CA -
      changing from SimpleText to Composed.
