Barry Schwartz on SERoundtable.com put up a quick blurb about a comment from Google’s John Mueller.
Mueller was apparently responding to a Google Webmaster help question on whether the user needed the keyword in their domain.

Schwartz points out that Mueller has expressed this sentiment in the past.
