Frame lever-arm parameters when transforming acceleration easurements

I see that the ROS imu_transformer node does not consider the lever-arm (translation) parameters between the two frames. Transforming acceleration data needs knowledge of the lever-arm parameters since it can be subject to centrifugal acceleration. Is this ignored on purpose, assuming such effect might not "significantly" bias the measurements?
