Until I came across LMDE, I used a mix of Debian Stable and Testing (that's Debian, not a mint or ubuntu derivative) simply because some of the applications I use need newer libraries than what is offered in Debian Stable. The reason I switched to LMDE was because it took a lot of the burden off of my shoulders -- I no longer needed to manage the Testing libraries myself.
If LMDE becomes Stable based I'll probably switch back to using vanilla Debian.
If you do go back to Debian, do yourself a favour and do not mix repos.
I wouldn't normally recommend it either, unless you're extremely careful with what you're mixing. The only reason I did it was because it was the only way I could get my setup working properly.
