The HABTM association is really just a convenience wrapper for when
you want a basic many-to-many join, as soon as you want to do anything
else with the join model/table I would reccomend switching to the more
reliable and predictable:
ModelA hasMany JoinModel
ModelB hasMany JoinModel
JoinModel belongsTo array(ModelA, ModelB)
The join model then acts as any other model and gives you the ability
to save extra fields along with validation.
