If I read the ASF release guidelines [1] correctly, all things a project ships out is a release.
So because Camel ships a bin-distro, that's also a release.

I am also a fan a building against the oldest supported platform.
Would it be possible to 
- build Camel against Java6 for getting the "right" class file format
- generate the html using Java7
- jar them using Java6?

Another option would drop Java6 ... But as Oracle writes [2] for Java6:
- Feb 2011: End of Public Updates Notification
- Feb 2013: End of Public Updates
- Dec 2013: Premier Support Until
BUT
- Jun 2017: Extended Support Until
