Think some blue once acknowledged it in a post or dev in a interview, can't remember

Yep, they did.

"The seven heads of Y'Shaarj breathed out the ... Seven Burdens, although that was from an early draft of the story, we really only see six sha in the game ... which have to do with the Burdens of Shaohao." - Dave Kosak


However, in-game we have the seven heads, and the Burdens of Shaohao are called the Seven Burdens. So regardless of what the devs said, I find it more interesting to incorporate a possible seventh sha when all in-game lore continues to point to one existing.

With Shriukan, I have used the personality traits of the elements to soothe people, but not remove the Stage 3 corruption.

With each sha corruption he finds, he tries to find out a way to counter it.

Sha of Anger/Rage - The patient earth soothes you with its rocking sound and movements
Sha of despair/doubt - The raging fire makes you feel stronger and alive and the energetic wind gives you the confidence to act.

These are still general ideas that will eventually get tweaked.

It's cool to see how people think of inventive ways to counter the Sha. That's what I love so much about these creatures. Unlike something distant like Deathwing, the Sha are present everywhere and enter a creative dialogue with the players. How you deal with the Sha, when they arise, what works and what doesn't is mostly up to the players to decide. Not so much with Deathwing.

Mind-wiping people to forcefully remove their negative emotions with dark shadow magics for example is a hilariously ironic yet fool-proof method. It comes at a heavy cost of course, but still.

What?
So me (oh so seriously) saying that feminists will become the seventh Sha is suddenly connecting me to another thread?
Clearly there's some amazing explanation for that, (No, there really isn't.) but let's get back on topic shall we?

The Seventh Sha might be everyones fucking obsession with Jade. "Sha of Obession". Seriously, I'd not be the least bit surprised.

"The shadow of greed, that is."

It means I'll still be right, since I guessed greed.

About the 7th sha... Had to think a bit for where I would find this, as I couldn't recall the name of the quest nor if you got any achievement or what the name of the item you got as reward was. Luckily I still ha the boots on my lock, and from there found the Path of the Last Emperor quest, which is the first piece of confirmation and information of the 7th sha as far as I know.
Path of the Last Emperor completion:
   Seer Hao Pham Roo says: I was going to teach you a lesson but instead, it is you who have taught me. You see, when I was young... when I was young... when I was young...
   Seer Hao Pham Roo says: I was EMPEROR.
   The seer's voice deepens and a flash of green light surrounds him as he grows in size and rises into the air to reveal his true form: the spirit of Emperor Shaohao!
   Emperor Shaohao says: The realm you see all around you was mine to command.
   Emperor Shaohao says: I conquered my doubts, my fears, my anger... I buried all of it within the land.
   Emperor Shaohao says: But I held on to one vice. The one sha I never conquered. PRIDE.
   Emperor Shaohao says: My pride cloaked this land in mists! I thought we were better than the rest of the world.
   Emperor Shaohao says: I thought we could solve our own problems. But for ten thousand years, we stagnated, our doubts and fears buried in the land, rising up to fester whenever we allowed them.
   Emperor Shaohao says: Pride. It is the most insidious of sha. It is good until it is bad. And then it is more dangerous than all the others combined.
   Emperor Shaohao says: Beware of Pride! Be humble! The world is plunging into chaos. Old enemies must work together. Proud races must admit they need help.
   Emperor Shaohao says: Things are going to get worse before they get better. Only by working together can we overcome the darkness.
   Emperor Shaohao says: All that stands in our way... is pride.

Since Drustai no longer plays the game, an update would require someone to take over and re-create the guide using old and new information about the Sha. Alternatively we can hope she'd return... someday.

They're gone.

Y'shaarj is defeated; the Sha are gone or at the very least going into recline. The curse has been lifted.

That's one thing to consider. When you finish the raid you get a small story-bit where you talk to Cho, and he shows you a tree. From that bit I also understood that the sha is gone, but I'm not sure.

It has been established that the source of the Sha was the Heart of Y'shaarj. With the heart having been moved from Pandaria to Ogrimmar only to be 'defeated', it stands to reason that the Sha in Pandaria would start fading away. How long this process of recline will take, however, should obviously depend on what kind of stories you want to tell. As always, the villains will dissapear out of the narrative at the speed of Plot.
