How would be the package updates on this?

The packages will be tested by you and some others before we get them on this distro, or we just update from Debian Testing repos?

I can sort something out with mintUpdate (basically pulling from Debian Testing but only from configurations (as in moments) which you define as stable.. that way you'd be "jumping" from one stable frozen set of updates to another.. guaranteeing that your system is always stable and avoiding updates when Debian Testing itself is broken). Of course this can come as an update to mintupdate, we don't need to focus on this right now.

At least, it seems that this distro would have legs to run... ;)

Awesome, but would it not be better to base it right off Debian Etch/Lenny, instead of the Alpha?

It's based on Debian Lenny (Testing).
Alpha is the state of the 1st version of Mint Debian.
