Jamie Mackintosh off the ball shoulder shot on Richie McCaw

Your opinion doesn't matter.
The laws are pretty clear, your not allowed to tackle someone without the ball, dummy runner or not. (See law 7 & 10.4e)

Having said that, McCaw is just as much running into Mackintosh as vice versa.

Ben Tameifuna's hits vs the Brumbies in the Super Rugby final

Almost caught it doesn't make it legal. That would be an early tackle, man without the ball. But Speight touched it, that is the difference.

It seemed to me Smith did catch the ball and therefore it shouldn't have been obstruction. The tackle in any case was ok.

Drew Mitchell catches the ball between his feet after Leigh Halfpenny penalty

The idea was to catch it in his hands after it travelled back over his head.
Which he did once in a while but often not.
