I think that mini-gmp should not contain too many types, symbols,
definitions, includes that are not used by the header of the main library.

The priority now is to actively and widely test a feature: support for
different (smaller) sizes of limbs in mini-gmp.

That's why:

Someone needs to test with different types? Well, no problem.
mini-gmp.[ch] are just two files, and the header is not difficult to read
and adapt... is it?
