If Linux is deleted, then you cannot boot Linux no matter what MBR
you are using. If you moved away one kernel image referenced by
your LILO map, you can have a rescue one that you do never touch
that will allow you to boot. If you moved away all you kernel images, I seriously
doubt you'll still be in situation of loading anything useful using mbr.

Now, if you are willing to stop spreading FUD and perform an elementary
reality check, can you provide one example scenario where Debian's mbr buys
you one fnctionality that cannot beachieved using plain LILO?
