The old WD of Lists that I started from has 7000 as ՈՒ (well, the
lowercase version of those letters).  It looks like fantasai changed
it to just Ւ based on Ishida's feedback. (This has subsequently moved
from Lists to Counter Styles, as
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-counter-styles#armenian>.)

Reading further into the thread that Ishida started, it seems clear
that using just Ւ is the correct answer always.
