You are assuming colons improve readability, which I disagree.
"Readability" isn't an entirely objective metric. But making colons optional would mean that you're now looking at two different kinds of code -- with colons and without. And it's extremely hard for me to imagine that having two different kinds of code would not harm readability.
Not when we dump colons like semicolons. We don't see two different kinds of code, one with semicolons and the other without.
