Speaking somewhat on behalf of TIBCO, I'm not sure that the use of a string
that begins "tcp:" means that what is contained is necessarily a URL. I did
a small amount of very informal questioning of some of my fellow employees,
and didn't get the impression that the use of "tcp:" was anything other
than a signal for the type of thing that followed the prefix, and not
strictly speaking a "resource" locator.
