Think of it like a great pool player. A great pool player hits the cue ball not only so that his target ball goes where he wants it, but the cue ball ends up in the proper position for the next shot. You have to play the piano not just so you are playing the note when you get to it, but so your hand is set to play the next note.

That is often a problem with published fingerings. That is usually the most important advice that they give, but it is often interspersed with extraneous fingerings.

One comment stores made may have gone unnoticed: the left hand drives everything. This is an aspect a non-baroque specialist may not appreciate. The LH does indeed drive everything and it just one of the many advantages of playing Bach - assuming the majority of pianists are right-handed. The LH is not only strengthened, it becomes an equal partner and a dominant partner when the need arises in other music. Playing Bach therefore enables the player, in other music, to focus on either hand as the driver, rather than, as can happen, the poor old LH trying to keep up with the RH.

Bach's music is wonderful to play for its own sake, but it sure has plenty of use for tackling other music: equality of hands/parts being just one.
