With things like Foo:Bar (or Foo.bar or what have you), there are indeed
conflicting definitions of "symbol" and there's usually not a single one
that works everywhere.  IOW you can't expect Emacs's notion of "symbol"
to cover all the use cases.  More specifically, Emacs's notion of symbol
can only be used as a stepping stone on which to construct the things
you need, on a case by case basis.
