For the basic trailhead definition, extra's are not required or implied.
Just a (visibly) designated place for people to start a trail.
The Trans-Pennine Trail trailhead is a trailhead, not a Dutch TOP.
Nederland has trailheads other than TOPs.

Other tags that may be used with a trailhead node to map specific details
or accompanying features for a particular trailhead are another issue, and
will probably vary a lot according to country, specific location and
judgment by the local mapper.
