Wow. A 10 year old is involved in making the Ubuntu Unity Remix. Respect and great news. I really have to try it out. Although I am not sure anymore about Nautilus as the file manager. It lost so many features. I would probably use something else like UMix does.

As for Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix, I have a mixed feeling because you actually get most updates for the desktop (Cinnamon) through all the point releases of the lifetime of a Mint release whereas in Ubuntu LTS you do not or you rely on PPAs. Of course Joshua is right, on the interim releases you get all the newest packages and probably the newest features of the Cinnamon desktop.
