Well, I'm not sure. It would be a better idea, but I wasn't really  
sure what was going with amsmath's definition:


Since the point of overwriting this in fontspec is \AtBeginDocument,  
I didn't really want to override the effort that went into this macro...

So I figure anyone using \colon is *probably* using amsmath, and in  
that case I wouldn't want fontspec changing their documents from how  
they expect. The corollary to this being that the lucida maths setup  
probably is being a little over-enthusiastic in providing macros for  
its glyphs and anyone wanting a colon will be using instead:


Am I barking up the wrong tree?
