 > I think this works already, at least for post types.

 `register_meta()` currently works globally across all post types, but it
 does not support registering meta for individual post types, and that is
 what this ticket is about.
 The unit tests you provided are definitely helpful, but they test whether
 globally registered post meta (globally here means for all post types)
 works on a specific custom post type. I suppose we had a misunderstanding
 here, my ticket description should probably have been more clear.
