XAML designer for Xamarin Forms

Are there any plans to support Xamarin Forms in the XAML designer? We currently have the previewer window, but it’s only one way, and it would be fantastic to have first class drag and drop visual design experience.
For the love of God, because they have not yet implemented a Designer compatible with Xamarin.Forms is something extremely and widely requested a long time and so far not even a pre Alpha version, it is very sad and disheartening to see Microsoft ignoring the developers.

        Could NOT agree more... start in DOS days, everything text, text, type, type, type... move to GUI and WYSIWYG... and Windows... and now we're back into the everything text, text, type, type type! Come full circle!

        Is there something that's "rocket science" about creating a visual designer for Xamarin.Forms' XAML files? It's beyond my skill, but I would certainly think Microsoft, promoting VS and XF, could get that done... this century!
