The only term that crossed my mind was specialisation but that
doesn't really fit. I invented the shop=trade after a suggestion on this
list to consider subtags. Hence my concern that the re-use of trade
might be confusing. But something like
 business=trade, trade=plumbing
might work. As long as data consumers have no problems parsing that.

But perhaps business=plumbing could work and would be simpler?
I have always thought it odd that "business" was not used much as a tag.
Many of the uses of "office" seem to me to really mean "business".

That could even be 
  business=trade   trade=plumbing
if people think that business alone is to all encompassing. But it is
probably best to keep it simple.
