Well, I have definitely seen it used interchangeably (meaning both called regex). And a system I work on supports both, so, I don't assume what the clients mean when they say "regular expressions".
Having said that, I definitely wouldn't say one is a subset of the other. For one to be a subset of the other, technically, if you work only in the subset, then it should work in both. And this is not true, there are constructs in both formats that will break the other.
