Not unless you are playing from piano roll notation, tablature or any
other notation omitting functional scale steps.
Our whole harmonic system is designed around scales. Something like
<c e>4 <d f> <e g> <c e> | <d f> <e g> <f a>2 |
<d f>4 <e g> <f a> <d f> | <e g> <f a> <g b>2 |
sounds perfectly natural to us even though the thirds are
major, minor, minor, major, major. Try figuring this out as semitone
intervals without referring to a scale (as a chromatic button accordion
player which _has_ a uniform keyboard I know what I am talking about).

You'll find a lot of "theories" on the net. "Wohltemperirt" does not
refer to equal temperament. It also does not refer to meantone

A discussion implies listening. Without listening, it's just a shouting
match. I have the feeling that communication in English is making it
hard for you to get and make points. That might make a German LilyPond
user forum a better target for informal banter and would still leave the
English list for getting solutions when the German-speaking community
runs out of expertise.
