clean_<fieldname>() docs don't tell you what to do once you've verified the data is valid.

The custom validation docs for clean_<fieldname>() should point out that once you're done validating the data, it should return the cleaned data. It's not obvious that the method should have a return value.
(Additionally, a minor suggestion - perhaps you should refer to it as clean_<fieldname>(self). The current text could be confused to imply that self need not be added as an argument).
