True, but I mean they serve the purpose of having a look for a few days to see if you like it before doing any installation for daily use. I know you don't want to do that

For me, XFCE and the Debian edition run on computers where the main edition and even the LXDE edition don't so including mint4win will allow users with older computers running Windows XP to try linux at is fastest.
That is a good point. Though I think Linux Mint Debian Edition isn't really targeted at people new to Linux, as it is more rough around the edges and requires some more hands on skills than the Linux Mint based on Ubuntu. Also consider for older machines, that by installing Linux Mint through mint4win you are making it slower because it runs from a big file on the Windows filesystem. So you are using two filesystems (one inside the other), and this doesn't help in performance.
BTW for Debian there is a application "Debian-Installer Loader", which allows you to install Debian from within Windows. It is not compatible with LMDE as far as I can tell, and it doesn create partitions.
