No, since it has no action, it has no callback useful. You could used
a posthandler if you needed to interact somehow, though.

About the only thing I can suggest is to use an input filter to
monitor the changes in the Input object and modify the Text object

I'm not sure I understand why you need to update Text objects if you
already have the same information in the Input object. This seems
redundant to me.
