You don't have to do this for major sevenths- just include the following within 
your ChordNames context:

   \context ChordNames = "Chords" {
         \set majorSevenSymbol = "maj7"

What I do for other chord exceptions is put them all in one big file and 
include that file in all my scores.
I suppose that doesn't work if you have different interpretations of chord 
names for the same chord in
different pieces, but doing this once will save you a lot of hassle.  And 
saving you hassle is one of
Lilypond's strongest features.
