If shaping between lan and wan, what happens to opt1 traffic?

I'm happily shaping between lan and wan interfaces, so far so good, now i will connect another office using opt1 interface, i know the shaper doesn't support more than 2 interfaces, what will happen to opt1 traffic, it will match the interface's default queue on each interface right?
If so, that means opt1 traffic will be shaped, it can not take more than the BW assigned to each default queue or am i totally misunderstanding the HFSC concept?

I will be having same topology as the original post above, I read and understood the dynamics of queuing of traffics shaping.
And know that we will be having a dedicated 2mb connection (via opt1)to the co-location data center I'm wondering how will this go along with my existing traffic shaping setup.
Here is my current setup
internet –-----2048/1024------------- wan(pfsense)lan–----lan segment
co-loc datacenter-----2048/2024 ------opt1–
Note: traffic shaper ON -working decently with a existing queuing on the lan/wan is this:
1024 Kb qwanRoot
2048 Kb qlanRoot
Since I'm quite happy with my basic traffic shapper, my question is:
1.Is traffic shaper queuing work only on wan interface? I mean can i push higher traffics to LAN interface and expect that queuing will take place before traffic totally pass out on the wan interface? I ask this since my upcoming 2mb dedicated line to co-location server, I want it or expect it not to pass in "wan" queuing since traffic from LAN segment is routed to the opt1 interface.
Again pardon me with my English, thank you and good day.

Any outoging traffic on an interface where shaping occurs will be effected by the policy in place.
So the traffic leaving lan will be shaped the incoming on lan no.
(Beaware that this limit is removed on 1.3, just as an FYI).
