Pretty much it... the water will wick and run down to the low point... which is normaly the center of the tarp!
You could tie drip loops near the tarp ends, and you'd probably be ok.
I like how the line looks, though! I did use a Mule Tape ridgeline in my back yard until I bought a spool of zing-it and a dutch hook...
