Nope, they're exactly the same in Etch and Sid.  Assuming there are no
sarge, sarge security, or backports entries in your sources.list, try

apt-cache show x-window-system-core | egrep '^(Depend|Suggest|Recomm)'
apt-cache show x-window-system | egrep '^(Depend|Suggest|Recomm)'

to see for yourself.

Unfortunately there seems not to be an "xorg-core" meta-package.
