Ahh, Leo... what would I do without you? :D

Of course, you're completely right. I just put this to the test and got the same results as I did when I looked at the change in Lightroom.

Brilliant!!!! Going from max sync speed to 1 stop faster shutter speed exhibited the same -2.7 EV and then -.9 and I would imagine that it's going to be the same 1 stop loss for each stop of increased shutter speed, give or take a few tenths of a stop.

I thought your were changing the ss on the meter. Without that it wouldn't have worked. Glad that it is working fine.

Initially I wasn't changing the shutter speed on the meter. Since the meter didn't go above 1/1000s, it didn't occur to me that it was an accurate or correct way of metering.

As it turns out, that's the way to do it and as it's been said, once you get that initial change of ~2-3 stops, you can then predict the results as shutter speed increases.
