WCS ritchey protocol 10spd only?!?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

the 10sp only shimano splines are 1mm taller compared to the 'regular' shimano spline, which is 1mm tall.

so, no it won't work unless you swap the freehub for a 8/9/10 freehub body..
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
