Add design time support for x:Bind syntax

Currently there is no design time support for x:Bind syntax. This makes it hard to use either design time data or mock data to visualize layout at design time.

    Agree that this is sorely needed. There is a fallback value that I have been relying on for design time support but this has implications when running the app at run time so really needs to be removed for deploying. This is a chore.

    Totally agree, design time Data it's a core feature to avoid wasting time executing the app to see changes to the layout. As Microsoft said it's focus on improving the inner circle of developers day to day experience this should be added asap.
