Well, I always advocated removing them, just like unnecessary HTML
markup (like strings enclosed in <b></b>). It only creates duplicate
strings which differ only with a single character, thus it can happen
that a string on the same page has two different translations (for
example when the string with the ":" was added later than the first
string). But that's just my opinion (as it's also my bug ;) so we can
change it for Juno if the consensus is to keep the punctuation...
