Unless my self-assessment has deteriorated, I have mostly attempted my own 
diagnosis of problems before asking solutions.

In this case, my reference was this GNUmed wiki page

where I had written

        Placeholders come in the format

which accords with source code inline comments (lines 76-81) in

as follows:

        • # the following must satisfy the pattern "$<name::args::(optional) 
max string length>$" when used
        • __known_variant_placeholders = {
        •     # generic:
        •     u'free_text': u"""show a dialog for entering some free text:
        •         args: <message> shown in input dialog, must not contain '//' 
or '::',
        •         will cache input per <message>""",

So I had trouble to see what from GNUmed's point of view was missing.
