If I'm picking a domain name for a business, I care far more about whether or not it's something that is memorable than whether or not it has keywords in it. That means sometimes it does, but sometimes it doesn't. If you want to build a brand, you start with the users, not the search engines.
Even if it means you have to make up a word. (Zappos, netmeg, whatever)
Even if it means you have to pay more than the $10 hand reg fee for the domain.
