it's how it is in Avid CMX EDL, and if people are going to use URLs
with time ranges to denote source media in web video editors (as
metavid is already doing) then there may be an expectation that the
syntax supports split field timecodes.

We don't have that as a requirement, but we may in future. Hence
perhaps it is a bad idea to use a single colon ':' now as the frame
separator.
