Comment (by tharsheblows):

 I think this works already, at least for post types. What tripped me up
 originally was remembering to add `'supports' => array('custom-fields')`
 when registering the post type -- also, `register_meta()` uses object
 types so custom post types are registered using `post` eg
 `register_meta('post', 'meta_key', $args)`

 Attached are unit tests.
