Trinity is not supported by Debian mainstream at all (yet).

Never tried LMDE but from what I read the main attraction is the Mint 
menu (think it's Gnome) the rest is Debian Testing with some non-free 
and and modifications. So if you want Trinity rather than Gnome why not 
start with straight Debian?

The only live/installable builds I see for Trinity are kubuntu.
As far as I know only myself has been doing live builds for Debian 

I can confirm that Trinity runs on todays Debian Testing, I did a live 
build this morning but so far only tested in a VM

As far as I can see there is nothing to stop a user from dist-upgrading 
Squeeze/Trinity to Wheezy (or Sid) at the moment, just don't do it in X. 
Or installing Trinity on a Wheezy base. That could change at any time 
though and it might be difficult or impossible to downgrade.
