Comment (by p51labs):

 Let me expand a little on my previous example. Let's say I have 3
 checkboxes, all for one meta_key and the values are 1,2,3. Now by default
 in my meta box I set 1,3 as checked. Now a user comes in and creates a
 post and decides none of them should be checked. Now not storing the data
 is accurate however it doesn't tell me that the user unchecked anything so
 when I render the field again do I assume I need to load the default
 values or now leave them all unchecked? I suppose a I could check whether
 or not the post is new or being edited but is that the best approach?

 This solution requires checking for the meta and if the meta key exists.

 Just throwing in some thoughts, thanks for taking the time to consider
