However, there's currently no way for me to use this because when I provide a connection url like
the drivers prepend "mongodb.tcp" to the provided url. It's not clear why it's required that the host must start with "mongodb.tcp". Why not let the user specify the actual DNS entry to query?
I believe the same issue will exist for multiple orchestration frameworks such as Consul/Nomad and Kubernetes.
This idea was implemented in https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/DRIVERS-521
