Space-colon-space is ISBD, but Colon-space is not, right?  Sounds like splitting hairs to a human being, but for purposes of automation they are like apples and oranges.  Since ISBD is a machine protocol, it should be fine to have colon-space in a title proper, I would think ...  

This is probably a useful concept for those who catalog art exhibition catalogs, where there can be twenty-five titles published every year with the title Picasso: [something].

A colon is prescribed punctuation for other title information in ISBD.  RDA doesn't require using ISBD punctuation, but if you do, you need to change the colon to something else in the title proper.

I agree with you Eugene. RDA allows colons to be present in titles proper, so if you interpret the entire thing pre- and post-colon as the title proper, that is a valid authorized access point.  It's definitely open to interpretation here.  LC has many authorized access points for films and tv programs in which they changed the colon to a hyphen or a comma, e.g. Star trek--the animated series (Television program) and Star Wars, episode III, revenge of the Sith (Motion picture) and Lord of the rings, the fellowship of the ring (Motion picture).  The colon is now allowed in RDA, so a comma or hyphen no longer need be used.

This confuses the colon as a mark of punctuation with the colon as ISBD punctuation, which aren't the same thing.  This practice seems to have carried over into RDA.
