I agree with Ian and Steve

In skip change the step begins with a lift "up", "off the floor" from
where the foot has been.

In bdp the step begins "down", "into the floor" which for me, means it
has come from a place above the floor, that being the preparatory jete.

I believe these are the two character distinctions between the two
steps. One is "up' and one is "down" to start.
