By this I mean fretting with your entire fretting hand above the neck rather than the traditional position where the palm of your hand is underneath the neck. For an excellent example of how well MAB uses this technique look at the version of NO Boundaries he plays on the original Speed Kills VHS tape (the one where MAB is wearing a Gold's Gym tank top).
The best example starts at 1:57 into the following video and then also at 3:16

I do it occasionally! There are a few sweeps that you can learn to do pretty well over the neck if you have already mastered them the normal way. For some reason the ones with the rolls are easier over the neck.
