I'm not sure if the keyword *anywhere* in the url carries a heck of a lot of weight, but I've been testing a keyword domain for a number of years and that sure as heck does.
When the domain had a single holding page with a <title>keyword</title> and some "Coming soon" copy it usually held positions 1 or 2 and stayed stable for 5 or 6 years.
When I changed hosts I forgot to upload any pages at all, so for the past 5 or 6 years it's been completely empty, yet still usually ranks 4 or 5 for [keyword]. Only the most powerful, largest sites outrank it.
Oh, and Bing -- correctly -- does not include this domain in it's index.
