Maybe you mentioned this, but will a nonstructural slab on grade be placed on top of the 7' of fill?  Have fill consolidation/settlement been considered?

to give a little more information, the slab will but or be cast over the top of the wall, and the wall is an exterior foundation wall with living space on the fill side.  The walls will range from 2' to about 7' tall from top of footing to slab elevation.
