So if I understood all this correctly,
this mail here was more of a heads up what is happening
than a discussion on how could or should be best done.
I just hope you (the team behind decisions) considered all scenarios how
will that impact everyone involved.

We prefer duplication of all tests in the testsuite to keep test
To be sure we don't have regressions with introducing Elytron and at the
same time we are able to cover current features with Elytron, we must run
all tests with both security subsystems.
Even if a test is not security related on the first glance, the tested
component may use a security feature internally. By switching to the new
security subsystem the feature may stop work.
Let's keep the current (legacy security based) tests alive until the
legacy security subsystem is fully removed.
Then we'll simply remove the *-legacy-security testsuite modules.
