For me, doing different triples does not improve the enjoyment of the program so I wouldn't add any points for choreography or interpretation. I think maybe a point for every different triple successfully (+GOE, no "e") executed, so you wouldn't penalize someone like Mao who doesn't do a clean lutz but does do an axel.
