Yes. I invented that tag and have already noted the possible confusion
earlier in this thread.

I have dithered about whether this second usage of "trade" would be
confusing. Just as long as it can be used in a clearly distinct way, and
the documentation clearly notes the other use and indicates how they are
distinguished, I guess it would be OK.
