If "z" is the coordinate normal to the surface then the velocity is proportional to "z" very close to the surface and we can define the limiting streamlines as the limit as z->0 (continuity of the velocity field is assumed). They are also related to skin friction lines which are used to identify points of separation in a 3-D flow. See this page and references therein.

Also in unsteady flows the separation point is not even situated at the wall. See the recent book by Sychev et al "Asymptotic theory of separated flows" (Cambridge university press). To obtain the limiting streamlines you simply calculate the surface values of the stress and use the (in) surface components as "velocities" in the calculation of the streamlines.
