Default layouting UVs in Maya

i got a couple of questions...all inputs are welcome.

>if say i have a lowres model which i will smooth later... at what stage should i layout UVs, in the lowres or the smoothened one?

>if i assign projections and layout UVs in the lowres model, will i still maintain or retain the same/relative placement of UVs once i apply a smooth operation to the lowres model?
