Looking into a book on algebraic geometry, it seems fine to use operator : for projective coordinates. So skip the variation without spaces then.

Then one might use two short commands : and \: that correspond, by an option, to \colon and \ratio. Unicode ∶ RATIO U+2236 should always be operator :, i.e. \ratio, then, though.
