John, i'm not clear on who you are disagreeing with, Christoper or Adam?

I agree with Adam.  The Star Trek example is a good one of how colons 
are used in the real life world and how treating anything following a 
colon as a subtitles is not only out of step with how the rest of the 
world views titles, but also creates many title conflicts that we are 
now required to resolve if you follow the LC-PCC-PS documentation.
