Exact match domains are not new. People have been naming their businesses with an exact match of what they do for many years. "Townname Builders, Ltd", "Townname Plumbers, Ltd", Acme Window Cleaning, etc. This is nothing new. Penalising people for doing it what's new!
Your statment is a perfect example of why we're seeing Google taking action against EMDs. SEOs have been doing exactly what you say on a huge scale for years. Why would Google want to rank thousands of sites, millions of pages of stuff generated by the SEO industry?
Another example of Arrogoogle!
