As pointed out in a contributor note by @janwoostendorp, the current description for the $object_type parameter in register_meta() is a little vague: "Type of object this meta is registered to."

We could do better about documenting a few potential object types that it can accept. Obviously it's not limited to core object types, but giving some examples provides insight into what's expected.

Best recommendation for a patch would be to add an open-ended statement to the description along the lines of "Accepts ... or any other object with an associated meta table."
