This is ok, but I think it would have been better to drop the versioned dependency on xserver-xorg-core as suggested in the bug report. oneiric's xserver-xorg-core has a Provides of xorg-video-abi-10, so there's no actual risk of a too-old xserver-xorg-core being pulled in together with fglrx; and by hard-coding xserver-xorg-core | xserver-xorg-core-lts-quantal, you ensure that this will have to be updated again for the next enablement stack in 12.04.3.
