We could completely re-do the obsolete option mechanism now that hsx is 
not an issue, but simply deleting all the already invalid options is 
fine. Though some additional commentary we be useful:

241  * limit, we flatly refuse to admit the existence of the flag.  This 
242  * a flag to die correctly over JDK releases using HSX.
+    * But now that HSX is no longer supported only options
+    * with a future accept_until value need to be listed, and
+    * the list can be pruned on each major release.
