### Description

Xamarin Forms' RaiseChild and LowerChild methods (Xamarin.Forms.Layout) have no effect in the UWP platform.

### Sample App

This sample app is a trivial Xamarin Forms app that demonstrates the problem.

### Steps to Reproduce

1) Download, open and run the sample Xamarin Forms app in the UWP emulator
2) Click the "Raise Red" button to raise the red box on screen to the top
3) Click the "Lower Blue" button to lower the blue box on screen to the rear

### Expected Behavior

The red box, which begins on the bottom of a stack of three boxes, raises to the top of the stack.
The blue box, which begins on the top of the three-box stack, lowers to the bottom of the stack.

Here is a screenshot from the Android emulator (where this works fine) showing what the screen should look like after performing steps 2 and 3 above.

### Actual Behavior

Nothing happens.

Here is a screenshot from the UWP emulator showing the original screen...pressing ANY "Raise" or "Lower" button has no effect. Note that both RaiseChild and LowerChild work as expected on Android and iOS.
