Description (last modified by ramiro)

See #7800

The object_id_field and content_type_field options to GenericForeignKey aren't validated by model validation, which means that if you make a mistake or typo weird stuff happens. ./ validate should complain about that.

I think this is probably blocking on the ability to plug into model validation since GFK's are in contrib and shouldn't have code in core.

Yes, see #16283 for why validation of contrib.contenttypes stuff is problematic at the moment.
