You can safely delete cacls.exe.
The OS and Domain Controller doesn't use it to change ACL's, it's only for admin-side use.
But remember that sometimes after DC Promoting some folders can lose their ACL's ( remaining old non-existing SIDs ) and changing them manually will take so long, so using cacls can save you lot of work :P

Hope this helps.
