Comment (by WraithKenny):

 On the revision check of `WP_CPT_Meta_Box`: Sometimes authors intend
 revisions to receive metadata updates and restore metadata on post
 restore. It'd be nice to have a built in functionality for this in the API
 (or at least account for it).

 Also, if the `WP_CPT_Meta_Box` is on an Edit screen with a '''nonce''',
 the cap check wouldn't be necessary as Edit screen checks
 `current_user_can( 'edit_post' )` prior to `save_post` and any other
 situations (Quick Edit, for example) won't pass the nonce check.
