I can be typing away and then hit Home button which I would think would display some kind of menu for the keyboard and it just cancels whatever I was typing. It doesn't ask for any confirmation, all my work selecting letters is just discarded. I would like to see the home button display a screen saying: Are you done typing? Yes, No, Cancel which would be navigated between using both the wheel or arrow keys and the select button to confirm.

Yes: would save my work
No: would let me continue typing
Cancel: would abort the typing process entirely
This task depends upon

I changed my mind about how this should behave:
The home key could be a menu asking:
*Continue Typing

Moving the wheel or arrows would change the selection between yes no and cancel. Pressing select would confirm the currently selected menu item.
