After deleting the Name property of a control, the <outlet> tag created in the Storyboard file for that Name remains.
## Steps to Reproduce
1. Create a new Single View iOS App
2. Open the storyboard file
3. Drag a Button onto the View
4. Type in a Name via the Properties > Name textbox with the Button selected
At this step, there is an <outlet> connection in the Storyboard file. Verify by opening the storyboard in a text editor and search the xml for the same Name you used in step 4.
5. Delete the Name value for the Button and save the storyboard.
## Actual Results
Edit the storyboard file in a text editor again and notice that the <outlet> for it remains.
## Expected Results
The <outlet> entry should be removed.
## Additional Details
VSMac 7.3 behaves as expected and correctly removes the <outlet> entry.

## Regression Check
Does not appear to be a regression
15.5 Preview 3: BAD
15.4.2 Stable: Bad
John, I've tried to reproduce this bug with 15.4.2 and with master branch without any luck - http://recordit.co/a2YBsMI0AJ. Did I miss something?
The steps look OK in the recording. Were you unable to reproduce with 15.4.2 like I was? Can you confirm if 15.5 Preview 3 reproduces the issue but master does not?
I tried three configurations:
2) 15.5 Preview 3
3) master branch along 15.4.2 (https://github.com/xamarin/designer#windows-1)
No one of them reproduces this issue.
Can you verify whether this bug reproduces with other elements, e.g. <segue/> and attach sample project?
