I don't disagree: I was just pointing out the internals of the LaTeX
exporter in that case.

Indeed. On the other hand, font-lock will still fontify is as
a description item, which is paradoxical.

It is. Or something like the slightly different "::\\(:?[ \t]+\\|$\\)".
And if the same modification is made to docbook.el (code is very
similar), that will make a good patch for the problem at hand.
