Possibly, probably. It's not on the roadmap (yet) https://github.com/linuxmint/Roadmap. Though given that Debian 9 will be released in 10 days it might rather be work put towards LMDE 3.

I highly doubt it. I would need to confirm but I'm not even sure that users upgrading Mint versions, say from 18.1->18.2, will get the new greeter. It might be troublesome swapping this out for people doing upgrades.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.
