> Another thing is that this syntax makes it impossible to have colons (':') in the output (eg '%{!?foo::}'), which is a limitation the original syntax doesn't have'. It obviously has it's own set of limitations and quirks...

Not impossible, but not straightforward. For ':' in the output you can use %define / %global:
rpm --define "text1 :" --eval '%{!?{foo}:%{text1}:%{text2}}'
or you can use %expand:
rpm --eval '%{!?{foo}:%{expand::}:%{expand::}}
