I know that, having a European Nokia 6260 myself. But the main problem
with how Myth used to work in text-entry boxes was that there was no
way to delete a character.

Also, there are still some places where t9 won't cut it (If a word's
not found in the dictionary, for example). While implementing t9 would
help some (For chatting), I still think the only really feasable way
to do it would be to have a keyboard.

And anyways, this won't work at all 'til the Myth UI is redesigned and
re-made so plugins can run asynchronously, and appear over Playback
and from within any menu.
