I believe that yes, text-transform applies to text in form elements.
However, since form element styling is out-of-scope for CSS, it's
entirely possible that a particular implementation act as if it
forces the contents to have 'text-transform: none'.

So the testcase is valid, but failure does not indicate non-conformance.
(I suppose it should therefore be marked as 'may'.)
