JDK-8162612 :  
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The classes and interfaces in this package have been superseded by classes in the java.security package.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. 
FC Extension Request The fix is coded and ready for integration, and the CCC has been approved. The risk level is very low. See the description for justification. The enhancement can be completed within a day of getting approval.
