I'm not sure what you mean "with and without -core"...
IIRC (it's been a while since I've used the 'simple' option), there is the
choice of xwindow-core and xwindow-system, and the little blurb about both..
There is no mention of "this package installs XDM". So the user happily
selects both to get a complete Xwin system, answers no to anXious about XDM,
but still gets XDM.
If it is documented somewhere, I don't think it's during the install...
