quarky just posted a great tip in the forum:

Despite having looked for exactly this, I had not seen the
"vlan_default_pvid" setting before.  This seems to solve the problem I

I believe the tagged wan port, where one VID on wan is part of a bridge,
is a semi-common usecase for OpenWrt (and CPEs in general).  Maybe this
kind of bridge automatically should enable settings like:

 ip link set <br-name> type bridge vlan_default_pvid <wan-vid>
 ip link set <br-name> type bridge vlan_filtering 1

as described by quarky?

AFAICS, a DSA based brigde won't work without something like that, and
having each user figure that out by themselves is going to create a lot
of frustration...
