I just posted a somewhat related question here: Compare and quantify relative improvement in ROC AUC scores? that has this as a component to it.
I'm not sure, though given the ROC AUC represents the probability that a classifier scores a positive case higher than a negative case, perhaps comparing the magnitude of the odds ratios would be an appropriate method for comparison.
So rather than 0.75 / 0.50, this becomes (3/1) / (1/1), so the improvement is 3x, i.e. the new model has 3x the odds of scoring a positive case more highly than a negative case compared to the old model.
(To the point above, 0.50 represents random chance, so perhaps these should be rescaled to between 0.5 and 1 which changes the interpretation though. Also in the case when you're comparing against a model with ROC AUC of 0.5, any improvement would represent infinite improvement. Comparing the odds ratios under this rescaled version also means that an improvement from 0.51 to 0.59 would represent the same amount of improvement as 0.91 to 0.99, however the former may feel more likely to arise randomly -- so would probably want to also consider some notion of confidence when comparing ROC AUCs.)
