Xamarin.Forms with Mono.Android 8.0

I seems Xamarin.Forms don't support Mono.Android 8.0? Upgrading Android support libraries to 26.x.x (API level 26 = 8.0 Oreo) because Xamarin.forms seems to have a strict dependency to 25.x.x.
Example:
When trying to upgrade Xamarin.Android.Support.Design to 26.1.0.1 the following error occurs:
"Version conflict detected for Xamarin.Android.Support.Compat. Reference the package directly from the project to resolve this issue.
TestApp.Android -> Xamarin.Android.Support.Design 26.1.0.1 -> Xamarin.Android.Support.Compat (= 26.1.0.1)
TestApp.Android -> Xamarin.Android.Support.v4 25.4.0.2 -> Xamarin.Android.Support.Compat (= 25.4.0.2)."

And also, if you look at the dependencies for the Xamarin.Forms nuget package, MonoAndroid 8.0 isn't even listed. Why is that? And what can I do to use API level 26 support libraries in XF?
