"Oh, and CBMP HAS NO STEPS! It is a position of the body and feet."
CBMP is a position into which a given step can be placed, which comes in two flavors indicating how far across to the other side of the body it the foot lands.
Going circularly around the standing foot, the front half choices for step placement are:
side side and slightly forward diagonally forward forward forward in CBMP forward and across in CBMP (and PP)
As a matter of definition placements are relative to the standing foot not to the body, so "across" refers to the moving foot landing across the standing foot - both "forward in CBMP" and "forward and across in CBMP" are placed across the body, while the first lands in front of the standing foot and only the second is across it.
