The gsiftp provider only deals with gsiftp. There are other
providers for ftp and http, but I think http is in read only mode.
However, you don't need to care which provider implements a protocol
if it is supported. Just write the URL and see if it works.

The cog globus-url-copy is built on slightly different APIs than Swift,
so that statement is not, in general, correct.
