Designer for Support library

Question about the designer: When we will be able to edit and interact with controls inside a _for example. Currently it shows a gray box so basically the designer is useless with support library controls.

I like editing in xml, but not everyone in a team. I hope there is some work to fix this.

    This is how Android works, so it is not a problem to be fixed.

    If it is an Android issue and not a Xamarin's, why do support controls work in android studio?

    This is a Xamarin Issue... Lazy developer I guess? or maybe just sloppy...

    So many new things, compiling them will be supported but hey our designer will not neither will Visual studio designer and we will not ensure they work in the future...
