I counter-propose to drop ":" or any other delimiter altogether. Delimiters
are the biggest pain points in the current syntax as suggested by
Benjanmin, Darin, and I.

If we're going to have expectations after test name, then there's no need
for delimiters other than imposing arbitrary maintenance cost on everyone
who edits the file.
