In a SS3 Dataobject, what field type can I use to display a many_many relationship that can be checked or selected?

I've tried using GridField, but I'm only able to find relationships using search/autosuggest and then linking them. I would like to list related items so user can just check the desired ones.

I also tried DropdownMultiSelectField but my understanding is this only work with Sitetree.

If you don't need to add new items, just manage relations to existing ones, a CheckboxSetField would work.
