Did not prevent me using Java 1.6 to compile.

Try updating a source file to add a call to "".isEmpty() - a Java 1.6+
method - and see what happens if you compile with the default Java set
to 1.6
That compiles fine for me on WinXP

Compiling with 1.6 will still generate 1.5-compatible code provided
that the source/target properties are set correctly.
Note that the Continuum build should pick up any usage of Java 1.6+
methods which is the only other issue here.

It's a pain having to update the pom just to check with different JVMs.

That's partly why CP now includes the java-1.x profiles.
Also, the way that is implemented actually works!

I don't mind it being present if it adds utility without causing problems.
