Maybe? Just think ANY service except HTTP. HTTP has good tools (not just socat) to transparently rewrite destination domain and forward to needed place. Any other service not really has quality tool for that.

If I understand correct, you cant really do it at packet level, you need application level tool that sees unwrapped packets and is designed to allow rewriting and forwarding (to SOCKS or anything else).

That's interesting idea, not quite helping here because with Tor transparent proxy interface (I guess SOCKS too), you still have to get inside the packets and change them from example.com to abcd123.onion so Tor knows what to do with them. Thank you.
