No we should keep the existing camel-http component and wiki page.
Its using the old HttpClient 3.1 which end users know how to use and configure.

HttpClient 4.x is a lot different API and much more cumbersome to
configure and use.
It would not be possible for end users to easily migrate from
camel-http to camel-http4.

Hence why we keep it in camel-http4.
We should add a new wiki page for people who daunt to use the
HttpClient 4.x API.

For a great Http client API we should look at the async-http-client
project. That is really taking off.

There is a Camel JIRA ticket to create a new camel component for it.
