You can do the NATting somewhere else; the important point is that the traffic 
must be NATted, not direct.

NO.  Accelerator mode is entirely different (from both intercept mode and 
normal Squid usage).  Accelerator mode is for placing squid in front of a 
specific web server (or a bunch of them, but not the entire Internet).  It is 
not for enabling clients to connect to the Internet in general.
