It is valid for a user to remove the 'RootNamespace' element from their csproj file by clearing the value of 'Default Namespace' in the monodevelop project operations. The MonoDroid xbuild targets file needs to take this into account and not throw this error when building a project without this value. Maybe we could fall back to AssemblyName:

/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Novell/Novell.MonoDroid.Common.targets: Error: Error executing task GenerateResourceDesigner: Required property 'Namespace' not set.
