Wouldn't it make sense to use OOUI to build this form and use the [[ https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/blob/a2f75a52efe316d5fea1b5faf9cb094638b6adaf/includes/widget/UserInputWidget.php | UserInputWidget ]], an example usage is in [[ https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/blob/master/includes/htmlform/HTMLUserTextField.php | HTMLUserTextField ]] for HTMLForm (maybe you can manage to use HTMLForm?). Using mediawiki.userSuggest in a new change feels false. The goal is to use one way for autocompletion, see T85394: Use OOUI suggestions/autocompletion components only (instead of jquery.suggestions, jquery.ui.autocomplete).
