It would be an interesting excercies to see what percentage of two letter .coms are non english language sites.
BTW, WordPress was already #2 for WP on Google. I remember that from when I used to want to visit the Washington Post website.
Even so, I think sites that get visited all the time are best off with the shortest domains. Although most people use bookmarks for sites they frequent.
