Note that Figure 2 in draft-ietf-trill-oam-framework-00.txt may be
misleading. There is no "MAC Relay", at least as that term is normally
used, inside a TRILL switch.  A revised draft will be posted.

Of course, you can always implement both a TRILL switch and a bridge
and interconnect them in various ways, including putting them in the
same box, if that is what you want to do.
