Description
Deprecate the elliptic curves currently implemented in the native implementation of the SunEC provider with the intention of removing or replacing them in the next JDK release. Most of these curves are not widely used and are not implemented using modern techniques and it is better to remove them going forward. See https://docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/13/security/oracle-providers.html#GUID-091BF58C-82AB-4C9C-850F-1660824D5254 for the list of legacy curves. 

The brainpool curves may be replaced with a more modern implementation (such as what was done in https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8208698) instead of being removed.
Comments
Marking this as Fixed. No code changes were required, just a release note and updated docs.
