It took me quite a long time before I finally stumbled upon the section about using natural keys for deserialization in the context of ContentType objects in test fixtures. I actually missed it entirely in the documentation and pieced it together after reading through the comments in #7052.
The problem in my mind is that natural keys aren't mentioned anywhere in the contrib.contenttype documentation. I took it upon myself to address this to hopefully save others from getting stuck like I did.
Attached is a documentation patch on the contrib.contenttype docs which briefly mentions natural keys and points the reader to more information in the serialization and dumpdata sections.
