I don't see any problem for the Glossary page to lead to the
next one in the list (and not have trail markup).
Or, instead of using trail marukp on the glossary page, just
hardcode the loop directly, as in
%trail% << ... | [[Documentation Index]] | [[Basic Editing]] >>

I don't think it's necessary (or useful); I don't expect people to
be following the trail through the pages in the comment section.
