Debian 9 is the base for the upcoming LMDE 3.
Unstable, right now, is a glimpse of the future LMDE 4 and LMDE 5 (assuming Clem and Co still keep LMDE going).
I ran unstable for several months recently - it's not too bad, really! Just have a backup plan if something breaks. I didn't have any catastrophic failures this time around, but I did have to do a complete reinstall once when I was running Unstable, right after Jessie was released.
