https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/db/models/#extra-fields-on-many-to-many-relationships mentions that "you can’t use add, create, or assignment (i.e., beatles.members = [...]) to create relationships" when using intermediate models for many-to-many relationships with through, but https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/db/examples/many_to_many/ doesn't, and should.
In the middle of the https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/db/models/#intermediary-manytomany section, there are notes about restrictions, and this probably deserves a subheading of its own.
