Recommended arp time settings for fwsm and 6509e switches

We currently have the arp timeout values set on the svi's in our 6509e sup720's set to 300 seconds to match with the default mac cam timers in the switch. The FWSM however has a default arp timer of 14400.

Should the FWSM arp times be adjusted to coincide with the settings defined in the 6509e switch? Also, is there any documentation that speaks to the adjustment of these three values?

Thanks in advance,
