Stop multiplying editions; LMDE has to be more user friendly fisrt.
Marked as considered
I think this is a great idea! The stability and speed of Debian is what attract me and the Testing level does not give the stability and polish for me. Mepis is a distro that shows how to use the Debian base and make a snappy and very stable distro with more drivers, tools and Adobe flash included. With a Mint Debian stable my distrohopping would come to an end at once. I definately support that idea!

Please do it.
I think it might also be possible and wonderful to add a kind of "mint source" or "mint-repo" to Stable in the way of the ppa's with some interesting software .
Just set your updates to be level 1 and 2. Geez
Sounds like a very good idea to me. I use Mint for my work and need my system to be as stable as possible.
I don't think the different editions replace each other. They are for different users and use cases. LM can't be simply "Debian based". Supporting Debian unstable directly (without Ubuntu) is another (strategic) question (more here: http://community.linuxmint.com/idea/view/320).
Personally I think you can expect to see this in the future, probably replacing the Ubuntu edition. Just my perspective, but it seems to be the way momentum is carrying things.
i think this is similar to
although this is better stated
I like this idea a lot, just LM based on Debian stable, would really be great.
