What would you need it for?

There are several types of accounting request packets, some of them
are Start, Interim-updates, and Stop. If you're doing traffic
accounting (i.e. monitoring how much traffic a client uses) you need
NAS to send them all (or at least Start-Stop).

I'm guessing you want to enable traffic accounting for NAS which does
not support radius accounting. You can't.
