   I prefer the latter to clearly separate what is user data and what
   the prompt provides.

I agree with Werner.  The colon serves as a boundary marker, so no
investigation is needed.  Even though such investigation and thinking
is easy, it takes a part of a second and still leaves me thinking
`why isn't this boundary marked?'
