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.
