I wouldn't let the fluid deter you. IMO a lot of the hype around mineral oil is unwarranted and DOT is superior in every way except toxicity. It handles heat better, is not prone to fluctuations in viscosity due to temperature, is cheaper, standardized, and easier to find.  Yes, you'll want to use gloves when you bleed with it and take precautions against spilling it, but it's easily cleaned up and it's not going to peel the paint off your frame the moment it touches it (just keep a wet rag nearby and wipe it off quickly).
