I'm sorry about asking this on this mailing-list,
but I don't know where to do.

A Trunk link in Annex D is said to be
"a LAN segment used for multiplexing VLANs between VLAN Bridges".
It means that a trunk link should be between VLAN bridges.

then, what do you call the shared link which
has only one VLAN Bridge and many VLAN-aware end stations attached to it?
I think this also looks like a trunk link.
Considering the following paragraph in D.1.1, Annex D, I might be wrong.

"The Trunk Link in Figure D-1 is a point-to-point LAN segment;
there are therefore exactly two VLAN-aware Bridges attached to this Trunk.
A Trunk Link could also be a shared medium LAN segment that
has many VLAN-aware Bridges atached to it"
