Still, other then saying that it is so because it has been said so - I still don't see an argument why the gwt-servlet.jar would technically require Java 1.6.
True, but some day you have to make the cut. Technically they probably have used a Java 1.6 API somewhere thats not available in Java 1.5. So if you compile using target 1.5 you still can't use the library because a Java 1.5 JVM does not provide the needed API. In that case you would get a NoSuchMethodError at runtime.
A good example for this is String.isEmpty() which has been introduced in Java 1.6.
