Just LMDE 'could' remain testing if there are enough of guys to play with it.
But IMHO, Debian stable + Mint (with even all DE as it is now) would be 10x better than a strange future bound with Ubuntu.

Have u heard about pinning or even the chance to install to even stable version of Debian some latest apps?
Watch keywords like pinning.
BTW, it's possible to install by:
sudo aptitude install -t testing app_name
And yep, on my Debian Squeeze I installed some latest apps but just those one which surely won't harm my stable system or which won't force me to update the KDE base and even almost the whole system...

While I haven't seen any plans about completely cutting the cord with Ubuntu, it's kinda interesting that (I think) every Mint version besides main (GNOME) and KDE is now based on Debian.
