Yes, we already discussed and dismissed that as too painful.
Tilde-expansion in the shell would be broken (you can't get
~domain/user/file to expand into /path/to/users_home/file, because the
shell tries to treat it as /path/to/domains_home/user/file).

Colon is equally bad, since 'chown domain:user:domain:group' is unparseable.

'chown domain+user:domain+group' is at least reasonable.
