And if you read the "Intended Tuning" section, you'll see that there's quite a bit of evidence that JSB was illustrating an unequal temperament, where each key signature operates differently. The 3rds in keys with more sharps or flats have more energy, and push the harmony along.

To illustrate equal temperament, transposing the same piece into every key would have been a better illustration.

Quote:
It is sometimes assumed that by "well-tempered" Bach intended equal temperament, the standard modern keyboard tuning which became popular after Bach's death, but modern scholars suggest instead a form of well temperament.[18] There is debate whether Bach meant a range of similar temperaments, perhaps even altered slightly in practice from piece to piece, or a single specific "well-tempered" solution for all purposes.
