Since when?

A orangefrog to an ITSP, used for handling 1 or more incoming/outgoing 
calls, is an old PSTN feature, sow why not use old PSTN terms too?

In this case I would call it a trunk. IMO a trunk is a virtual link to 
another party which can be used for 1 or more concurrent calls. If the 
other party is an ITSP or just another Astersik in a remote office is 
IMO irrelevant.

As we know from other projects, finding new names is never easy :-)
