Labels and IssueInputParamets

I'm writing a plugin that will (amongst other things) edit field values for an issue. To do this we're using the IssueInputParameters Interface, it has methods for editing custom fields and most built-in fields but not for Labels. It seems that the only way to update the labels is to extract the issue from the IssueResult and use the MutableIssue.setLabels function to update the labels. 

I thought the idea behind IssueInputParameters was to avoid working directly with issues and instead use Atlassian provided classes to do that. Am I missing something here or is there some way to update labels using IssueInputParameters?
