Somewhere within that 26 pages are some advice from Clem to activate levels 1 thru 5 when using mint update in LMDE. Personally, I've done that. And, yes there is a breakage today (xchat). But, there has been noticeable progress in the efficiency of MU, and hopefully more to come this month.
I would not recommend levels 1-5 on the ubuntu based releases (ie Mint 9, Mint 10, Mint 11).
Hope this helps.
sudo aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade

I'm not aware of any rolling release that does not require some maintenance. Still, it's more convenient than the 12 or 6 month reinstallation path, and far less hassle than the daily virus/malware update (that never really secures your system anyway).
