In our modularization effort then the highest priority issue for the 
client libraries area is JDK-8037739. This issue is about examining the 
supportness of the peer APIs, and assuming they aren't meant to be 
exported, then removing all references from the Java SE APIs (which 
might mean removing methods). Assuming that java.awt.peer and 
java.awt.dnd.peer are JDK-internal then you could drop the @Deprecated tags.
