Well... The SuperTalent had been a recommended choice, but several people lately have reported serious performance issues with it. The SaberTooth seems to be a rebadged older SuperTalent model that is not recommended.

When the Mini 9 was designed, this card-based SSD was really the only option given space constraints, and I note that Apple has brought back the card-form SSD in its recent products. Intel has some very tiny but good capacity card SSDs but they won't work in the Mini 9.

You could get one of the MicroSD card readers that barely stick out of a USB slot, like this one, and boot from USB. You are correct that the SD slot is not bootable, but it can be used for extra storage once booted.
