Best to expand the special abbreviations.
trippant: passant, head facing dexter
at gaze: statant, head facing the viewer
Head position is not a CD on a beast that has a body.
The different between passant and statant is basically one foreleg.
You can't add negligable changes and get a CD -- you can't say "a
semi-CD for feet and a semi-CD for head".
No CDs, then, between trippant and at gaze.
