I definitely agree that something (more) official would be ideal.
As for the repos, it will use the standard LMDE repos with the possible exception of Siduction's Xfce 4.10 repo (I don't think it has been decided whether to use this repo or not).
@raneern99 I know there's that, but still it would be better if it had some degree of official support.
Also, just a question: it uses the same repos of the official Mint of other ones? This is one of my biggest concerns regarding this idea.
LMDE Xfce was never particularly light (it used Gnome-ish apps, similar to MATE). I'm still going to promote the unofficial LMDE Xfce, which is going to be a much lighter and much more "pure" Xfce. I think it would be nice for Mint to have one official light edition. It could run Xfce (my personal choice), LXDE, E17 (my second choice), OpenBox, FluxBox, whatever, but I agree that something is needed that can run on less than 512 MB of RAM (which the Ubuntu-based Xfce can't easily do). I'm still going to recommend the Unofficial LMDE Xfce.
There's the chance that this could even be considered, who knows? I said that because I think that this is quite unlikely.
