Should that be "0:0 - 0:65536"?

The syntax "a:b" does not appear in that document. Is it defined
elsewhere? The use of the ":" as separator bothers me as that is
used in IPv6 address notation.
I don't mean to question the sanity of the choice in this forum, I am
wondering if the decision is documented elsewhere. (Obviously, I do
question the sanity of it, but I don't mean to make that a thread
here, nor am I strongly opposed to the choice.)
