There are no immediate plans to deprecate DomainCombiner, but we are 
looking at the SecurityManager (SM) and all of its related APIs and 
evaluating different paths forward, which could include deprecation or 
simplification. In the near term, we are looking at small SM-related 
enhancements which improve performance (such as this) or other things 
like removing legacy SM APIs and/or code.

I had expressed some initial thoughts on this topic here and hope to 
share some more ideas in the near future:

In the meantime, please let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas on 
this topic.
