I hadn't considered that I might be able to connect the xvlan(4) directly to the VM (or any other type of implementation that did not include using bridge(4)), as the example implementation of xvlan(4) that I found to help me understand what xvlan(4) fundamentally was, seems to show that is needs to be a part of a bridge(4) to be useful. That refrence is here:

I'll look through that paper to see if I can discover an implementation of xvlan(4) that will relate to my situation. Thank you for your reply.
The bugs will pass, but the functionality will remain.
