Well, take a look at tasksel's changelog:

  * Make the basic-desktop task incude all of x-window-system (so it gets a
    WM and xterm and so on), while the desktop task uses just
    x-window-system-core (because it already has a WM and so on from
    gnome and kde). Closes: #129217

I did the best I could within the constraints of the freeze and the available
X metapackages.
