fix_nated_register() does just that in nathelper(s): it adds
 a received="uri" parameter to the contacts of a REGISTER, where uri
 looks like:
 sip:src_ip:src_port;[transport=...;]dstip=local_ip:local_port .

We would only need to change the function name from fix_nated_register()
to fix_contacts().

I have somewhere a function that does just that (using the above
format). I used it a long time ago for load balancing (IIRC lb added
received="..." to nated contacts when forwarding to the proxies behind
it and removed "received" from r-uri, set the proper send socket based
on dstip and the destination based on the received=uri when forwarding a
message from a proxy to the outside world).
I can create a new module for it (if it's  not already in one of them).
