I have a small bathroom that is 70"x 67" and am stuck with a good 7" of empty space when I lay the 3'x5' backerboard. I was thinking of laying it from one corner and then maybe putting more thin set on the 2" subfloor to keep the height right. Is this ok or should I cut a 7" strip of backerboard to fill it in? The cutting of the backerboards is not fun so was wondering if my short cut would have major effect on the durability. Thanks.

If you could center the cement board so that you only have 3.5" on either side, you could probably get away with building it up with thinset (once molding is added and stuff, you'll be covering more of the gap areas anyway). But with a 7" gap, you should cut and patch in the strip of cement board.
