Personally I had some great success with single hyphen domains like snazzy-words.com were neither word was usefull as a keyword but it was memorable enough that I get SE traffic for searches for "domain-name". So it has pretty good brandability. Also, I don't thinkthat the kleyowrds in links issue is so major. I think so far I've always been able to supply anchor text, or the title of the page was used, never just the domain name. That's jsut some experience I had with it. Oh, and I could "connect" several sites with industry1-verb.com industry2-verb.com and so on, for extra branding.
