Description
The APIs in java.security.acl were deprecated in 1.9 but have had the following warning in the package description for a very long time:

The classes and interfaces in this package have been superseded by classes in the java.security package. See that package and, for example, java.security.Permission for details.

Since there have been suitable replacements since 1.2, there is no reason to retain this package and it should be removed in a future release. 
Comments
These APIs were originally marked for removal in JDK 9 but the change was backed out before 9 was released because some external projects needed more time to remove the dependencies. Marking them for removal is being re-targeted to JDK 10.
