I agree it looks like a window's size *and* as others pointed out is
in the wrong order of importance, 234y67x look even stranger.

So far David's suggestion is the nicest 11:55 but it might be confused
with the (display-time) in the 24h mode!  Generally I think people who
choose column-number-mode should know what is what.  But let's see
when we disambiguate it a bit with a 'c' or a dash:

300c40  300:40  300-40
12c12   12:12   12-12
13c71   13:71   13-71
1c0     1:0     1-0
12345c0 12345:0 12345-0
12345c12345     12345:12345     12345-12345

With c the meaning is clearer, I think, with the dash it's more
readable.  I'd choose the single c.

    Best wishes
