What you are defining is quite common and is talked about frequently as
  'custom controls',
such as Scott Rossi's beta product, or John Craig, Andreas Rozek,  
Chipp Walters.

You could make the label field surround the check box 'square' to  
create line 1 as a label and line 3 of that same field as hints or  
instructions.

So grouping is a good technique.
