Michael Foord added the comment:
I'd be happy with a doc change from "fixture" to instance (or maybe add instance in parentheses). I'd rather a simple change than making the documentation much longer.
The reason for a separate instance per test is for test isolation. Each test can create and modify instance attributes without them affecting other tests from the same class.
