Yes, just like password and salt do not - yet obviously we support those
inputs.  You may in fact exclude these extra inputs when you're merely
benchmarking, but once Argon2 is finalized and the JtR format may see
some actual use, those inputs need to be supported because a real-world
use of Argon2 might have them specified.  It is OK to wait until Argon2
is finalized before you implement this, if you prefer.
