Hi Hank ( ;-)

 IMHO the thing that is really strange is not that the processing is on 
the MSFC3 - rather that the traffic seems to be *process* switched

According to:

 Cisco rates the MSFC3 at 500Kpps for "software switched" packets and at 
20Kpps for "process switched" packets

 For comparison the RSP8 and RSP16 are rated at 22Kpps and 29Kpps 
respectively for "process switched" packets
