router/firewall is concerned, that packet is already delivered - why
would it forward it out on eth1?

Where the packet gets delivered is decided by the routing - and the very first table traversed is local - which is auto filled by the kernel. But that routing rule still can be forcibly removed, after which the next matching one is the one added manually - after which the packet will end in FORWARD, instead of INPUT.

(and keep in mind earlier David's warning about confusing programs/services - it's still doable, but requires more manual labor - proxy is certianly cleaner and just works)
