They are required by the grammar, but in a sense you are correct. You could
modify Python's grammar to make the colons optional and still keep it
unambiguous but that would make it harder for other tools (such as text
editors or indeed humans) to understand.
A little bit of redundancy in the grammar is seen as a good way to minimise
