Spurious error in Visual Studio

Visual Studio 2015 RC
Windows 8.1 x64 (clean install)

I've downloaded the UsingDependencyService sample app from http://developer.xamarin.com/samples/xamarin-forms/UsingDependencyService/.  The IDE marks the following source lines with a red error squiggly:

    [assembly: Dependency (typeof (TextToSpeech_Android))]

The error messages are:

    The type 'Attribute' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Runtime, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.

I've attached a picture of this.

The interesting thing is that projects actually build and deploy OK.

Seeing as it compiles the references must be correct. Looks like a bug in the VS 2015 IDE.

This bug is unrelated to Forms, just an intellisense integration issue (not related to Xaml). Reassigning to VS team.

This is resolved in alpha.
