Comment (by TimothyBlynJacobs):

 Uploaded a patch to support a `null` default type as discussed in last
 week's office hours. I don't think supporting `null` is a blocker, but
 it'd be a bit difficult to patch in later due to the args filter in
 `register_meta` and `null` would be the best default for a `date-time`
 meta type that is optional.

 register_meta( 'post', 'my_date', array(
     'type' => 'string',
     'show_in_rest' => array(
         'type' => array( 'string', 'null' ),
         'format' => 'date-time',
 ) );
