You trim nose down during acceleration because centre of lift moves forward
I think the larger effect is not so much any centre of pressure movement (which does contribute) but the fact that your overall lift is a V-squared function. When you accelerate you have to reduce AoA to maintain the same lift (for level flight), so lower nose attitude and more AND trim.
