Cool discussion !!

Over resolving dominant chord Min/maj7 arpeggio up half step gives nice altered sound (root, b9, 3, #5). Min9/maj7 adds b3. I guess this is more ppropriate fort single lines, though.

I stole that one from Robben Ford (Help The Poor solo!).

I love Robben Ford! one of my favs!  That's a pretty common, but cool device, but by extension, one can substitute (in theory) a min/maj7 chord a half step up (on bVI) in place of a V if the context permits (altered sound). 

another way i often substitute min/maj7  is to play a Imin/maj7  in th place of  a IV7 in major and minor keys.  

for example: in "Tenderly"  the first 4 chords are normally  Ebmaj7 Ab7  Ebm7  Ab7

but one could play  Ebmaj7  Ebmin/maj7   Ebm7  Ab7  

in "beautiful love" there's a  IV7   when it goes to the G7(#11) , so instead of playing Dm7 to G7(#11)  one could play Dm7 to DmMaj7.
 
Same thing in "Body and Soul"

in Samba de Bencao  the chords vamp between  I and IV7   but one could play instead::  Imaj7  to IminMaj7

the same things works for II7 in major (play a min/maj7 chord a 5th up) but it works a little less convincingly in my opinion.

sorry if it sounds like i'm lecturing, I just love talking about this stuff and wonder what ideas others have.
