If port type is not explicitly specified as access port (a.k.a. tagged-port),
then Open vSwitch will assume that this is a trunk port.

Also, if trunk list is empty, then Open vSwitch would interpret that as
"trunk all VLANs".

So, I guess, the answer would be "yes", if you want following
configuration:
...
   <vlan trunk='yes'>
   </vlan>
...
to become alias for "no vlan configuration specified at all" case?
