Well today [30th October 2013] I received an email from Google informing me that I was eligible for a custom URL.

Cornerstone content is a static page on your site that is very well written about one specific item or term which will then link out to other articles of interest on your site. For us, we use those other articles as posts that form one big hub of tightly related content around the keyword term we want to rank for.
