The @Deprecated annotation on a package is a no-op in terms of affecting the set of deprecation warnings the compiler produces. This has been clarified in the JLS and specification for java.lang.Deprecated in 9.

Thus, we should remove the @Deprecated annotations from these packages since they are not providing any value.
