I suspect Mint may need to do things that way just as a manpower issue. Mint's a popular distro, but I get the impression it's development is a relatively small grassroots thing with much more limited resources than say Debian or Ubuntu. (Of course, I could be wrong.)


This matches my observations too. It gained lot of popularity when Ubuntu switched to Unity as default desktop environment and Fedora moved with Gnome 3 - quite many users started looking for a distro with more conservative defaults. However its development / maintenance team does not seem to match that popularity burst.
