In StoryBoard
Under Any/Any add a UITextView to a VC
Change SizeClass to Compact/Compact
Change UITextView font/color/etc
Run App on any device at any orientation - note that the color change which should only have applied to compact/compact is actually applying to everything

I've been able to reproduce this issue in latest version Visual Studio for Mac  (stable channel)

I can confirm this also happens in Visual Studio 2017 Preview ("Version 15.3 (26510.0-Preview) Preview" with Xamarin.iOS (7571635)) when I was trying to set a UILabel's font size in WAnyHAny and then override it in WRegularHCompact. Instead of setting it for the final size class, it would force the more specific size for all size classes.

Only a subset of properties are eligible for sizeclass based specialization. We need to ensure our subset matches Xcode's subset.
