Yes, this is planned for SF, for the reason you note - it was actually mentioned in my "planned changes" talk at SMW Camp [1] (page 6). SF also uses the Floatbox Javascript library for file uploading, which I also hope to move over to jQuery if possible.

Similarly, Semantic Drilldown uses the Ext library for comboboxes, and I hope to move that to jQuery as well.
I should note that I have no immediate plans to do this, and also no special knowledge of jQuery yet; so if you or anyone else wants to help with the move-over, please just let me know.

Has there been any discussion, tickets, or thought towards migrating
Semantic Forms (and if it uses YUI anywhere, SMW)?

The usability initiative / js2 is using jQuery so jQuery will soon be
standardly included into MediaWiki.

So it would be a good idea to migrate to using jQuery. Loading 2
different javascript libraries is unnecessary.
