When trying to use DependencyService with an implmentation that is defined in an iOS class library, the resolution fails unless explicitly registered with the DependencyService using the Register method. Android behaves as expected. Linking is disabled, debugging is enabled, etc.

This is expected behavior.
Having had the same problem, could you tell me where in the documentation this behaviour is hinted at?
As a side note, even if the behaviour is expected I still find it annoying for library developers (and their users) as it forces the users to add as many Register() calls in their iOS subprojects as there are dependencies, instead of having it all hidden away in the library. For the lib developer, they'll have to document this behaviour properly, *and* deal with the users who will not read said documentation.
Any chance you'd go back on the expectation?
