Until I understand how these work a little better I don't have
any immediate plans to support them, other than perhaps to
have PmWiki recognize the tags that aren't allowed in paragraphs.

(Hint: if someone wants to explain to me why label/fieldset/legend
are useful or important, that might help.)

This is really where PmWikiPhilosophy #2 comes into play -- the 
(:input:) markup in PmWiki isn't intended to do everything that 
can be done with forms and input, it's just intended to provide 
an interface to generate simple forms from markup.  More complex 
forms still deserve custom markup.
