I don't think this can be considered a failing of SURBLs
since they contain the right data to catch this.  The issue
is more of applications using SURBL data and what they decide
to parse as URIs.

You're probably right that SpamAssassin (perhaps the application
you're using?) may not treat as URIs something that does not
begin with www or a URI scheme like http.  But that's more
of a question for applications than data.  See:
