Another, rather cheap solution, would be an option in the osc client to

only in osc checkouts where the colon causes problems.

I'm not sure if is possible to secure replace the : with another
character. Are there some constraints on project name? What in case if
user will have a home:user:foo_project and home:user:foo:project?

It would be his problem then :).

No, that would be an OBS problem because rules was changed.

Anyway all of these problems are fully predictable so users should be noticed
before change and this is just an academic problem. I'm fully for replace of :
to something else and secure (so not !, or ` :)).
