Idle thought: It's the domain-naming equivalent of what happened to phone numbers a while back. (Speaking of the US and, I think, Canada.) For years and years it was perfectly straightforward: three digits with 0 or 1 in the middle was an area code. Anything else was a local prefix. Now it's just a big mess and you don't know who or where you're calling.

I have slowly been divesting and am down to about 120 names of which about 20 are the hypenated version.
Of all the ones I have not yet developed, all keyword names, they will all have WordPress sites on them this year, I'll see how they go for a few months and then decide what to do with them.
After 18 years of doing this, coming up to 19 years, I'm getting fed-up of being jived around by Google and whilst we shall keep our brochure sites we'll be going back to participating in real world widget trade exhibitions.

No matter how cool or clever the domain name, if I don't have time/energy/interest/expertise to develop it, I'm better off to sell it or drop it, and free up the brainshare for the things I DO want to focus on.
