what defines a domain name as premium?

A couple easy metrics: Existing brand names/trademarks, existing websites on other TLDs, and length of domain with additional weighting for actual words (maybe additional weighting based on word/tuple frequency in say the google books corpus).

Machine learning.

(Not joking.)
