[c-nsp] 3550 policy routing

I may have a near future need to do [some more] policy routing on a 3550 
and found 

The 3550 in question is already doing policy routing of locally generated 
traffic using "ip local policy route-map LocalPolicy", and this did not 
require changing from the default sdm template.  LocalPolicy sets ip 
next-hop based on the packet's source IP address.

My questions are,

Under recent 12.2 software, will the extended-match sdm template really be 
required when policy routing routed traffic?

>From the above mentioned page, it sounds like even when policy routing, 
the routing is done in hardware...so is it safe to assume a 3550 can 
policy route line rate traffic (or at least several hundred mbit/s)?
