FileField upload_to should not be required for custom backends

For some file storage backends, the upload_to could be unnecessary. For example, I have an S3 backend and don't need any keys or prefixes for my files.
Currently an error is thrown if upload_to is missing or empty: "file": FileFields require an "upload_to" attribute.
Could upload_to be optional if the storage backend is custom?
