Documentation for REQUIRED_FIELDS on custom users is ambiguous

The documentation for the REQUIRED_FIELDS definition on a custom user model describes what fields must be included in required fields. It includes a note that says that USERNAME_FIELD should not be included in REQUIRED_FIELDS.
However, it doesn't say anything about password - which is a required field, and would otherwise meet the requirements of the REQUIRED_FIELDS definition. The note should be expanded (and the general definition clarified) to specifically exclude password.
This doesn't actually cause any problems -- it just means that the createsuperuser command asks for the password three times, instead of two, but it is confusing behaviour.
