Colon's in cookie values are invalid as per rfc2109, rfc2068, rfc2965, rfc2616
and the Servlet specification.

A superficial reading of the v0 cookie specification suggests colons would be
allowed, however colons are not permitted since that would be a breach of
rfc2068 / rfc2616.

If was approved and
referenced by a future version of the Servlet specification the colon character
would still be invalid in unquoted cookie values.
