I don't think that hurry is necessarily a factor here, given that javah would have been deprecated for about 4 years prior to its potential removal in JDK 10. Waiting to remove it until JDK 12 would make that 5 years of deprecation instead of 4.

If developers of an open source project have ignored a javah removal warning message for four years, I assume that they might just as well ignore it for five years, too, ultimately leaving downstream packagers in the same situation.

Instead, what I think would be really useful, if you'd like to make a case for a delay of this particular change, would be to find out the kind of cases where moving projects to use javac -h instead isn't feasible for some reason or other. Those cases would then be good items to discuss on the jdk-dev list.
