Well, the fact is that you are tunneling an ICE-TCP connection over an 
HTTP CONNECT, so calling it "webrtc" sub protocol is quite misleading. 
Mainly because there is not such a thing as a webrtc protocol per se, 
and ICE-TCP may be used by non-webrtc applications.

Also, I think it is not coherent because you are calling "turn" 
subprotocol to TURN tunneled over an HTTP CONNECT. So, following your 
reasoning, you should call it "webrtc" , given that TURN isn't 
inherently useful, after all.
