I love this entire suite and I play it. I resorted to making my own transcription and one of these years, when I have the time and inclination, I suppose I will sit down write it out using MuseScore or something like that.
The Yates transcription has a lot of really good ideas in it, so I certainly don't discount it at all; but I also agree that it sounds a bit thin in places and not cello-like enough overall. He does change some of the melodic lines; but this is a transcription, after all, and even Bach himself, had he scored it for guitar as well as cello might have made a few changes. So, I don't agree with this particular criticism of Yates' otherwise good work on these suites.
The Lorimer transcription works well enough.
I play it with E tuning. I can certainly understand the attraction of D tuning, though. I just felt that after all is said and done, D tuning does not really buy you all that much and that certain passages work much better in the normal scordatura.
