The type sun.misc.Timer has long since been replaced by the standard 
java.util.Timer. As an unneeded part of sun.misc, sun.misc.Timer should 
be removed from the platform. This is part of the larger cleanup of 
legacy unused classes from sun.misc, see JDK-6852936 [1].

sun.misc.Timeable will also be removed as part of this issue.
