I guess it's a bit like LilyJazz. Jazz people seem to want engraved scores to look like handwritten sheets done with a biro. But this always looks terribly 'faux' to me.

Ha!  I've always felt like jazz fonts (in general) where a strange and trivial pursuit/fetish/habit/convention/etc.

And maybe my misgivings about the value of jazz fonts are boosted by my swimming (or wanting to swim) between genres...

A distinct font for one particular genre insinuates that it is, indeed, a separate genre or universe -- to be kept apart from others.

My 3 cents.

If you mimick the stem lengths and directions of the manuscript in LilyPond, your engraving will still differ from Bach’s manuscript in many ways. It’s a totally different style of engraving, which follows different rules.
