I'd prefer something visual that represents "no colon".

Maybe %p6-: 

Or perhaps slightly worse to change the colon separated 
default %p6 to %p:6

There are another cases where the v6 address should have
as few leading zeros as possible or where the interior
zeros should be collapsed using :: separators.

Perhaps a good solution is to use the equivalent of
a "display-hint" after the %p6

Maybe use combinations of:

%p6:: use "::" and collapse when 0
%p6-: raw hex
%p6-0 %x not %04x
%p6.4 last u32 as ipv4 dotted decimal
