haven't we identified and *fixed* all the tests which use j.t.l.Platform class and their own security policy (as part of 8210039 or other testlibrary refactoring)? in other words, all the tests which use j.t.l.Platform must have a policy file which grants Platform java.util.PropertyPermission read. so there should be no impact at all, unless there are tests which grants permissions to specific properties, and such policies are relatively easy to find and correct.
