It seems to me that Robert VV looked into putting a /5 starter drive on a /7 starter, but I can't remember if that worked out.
It is a fact that the starter motors got a little bit more powerful almost every year. It is actually one of the theories for the slash numbers. This theory would have the /5 starters being lowest, /6 a little bit more and /7 the most powerful. I've even seen that equated to starter motor horsepower. Well I don't know about all this but the starters do get a bit more powerful.

Putting an 8 tooth drive gear in a /7 starter makes sense. Seems to me straight forward. But I've never done it.
