We've been looking at this today, and whilst we haven't found icacls
changing any ACLs that it shouldn't, we have no seen it reading the
ACLs of files on the entire disk. I've also found a couple of similar
reports on the net.
We updated our build system to use BitRock 7 today (for unrelated
reasons) which has new features for ACL management. We're going to
investigate replacing cacls/icacls with those features tomorrow and
will create some test builds ASAP.
Oh, the joys of supporting Windows :-)
