I feel like this is always going to be "more art than science". Determining the seven millionth article is limited by the fact that we do not count deleted articles as part of the total article count. This is different from using oldid for edits, since as I understand the oldid number includes deleted edits.

Just to add a bit, with a good chunk of Wikipedia traffic coming from the Mobilefrontend, I see this as a rather important issue that needs to be fixed. Blocks are common for places like educational institutions (e.g. schools, colleges, universities), which often share IP addresses for a university network. It is not very polite to give an innocent user, who genuinely wants to contribute but is inadvertently affected by a block, something that looks like this: File:Autoblock of usernamekiran.png.
