Currently there's only the option of adding a Forms Xaml Page, not a Forms Xaml View.  I can add a page and get around this by manually fixing up the markup and code behind but wanted to inform you guys that it is missing. (Visual Studio 2013 Update 2)

Also related is that the markup for the form content page is not correct (filed in bug 21217)

I have checked this issue and observed that in XVS we do not have option to add "Forms Xaml View", we have option to add "Forms Xaml Page" only. And in XS mac we have both options.
