Elements.cs about line 2785

		/// <summary>
		/// Creates the UIViewController that will be pushed by this RootElement
		/// </summary>
		protected virtual UIViewController MakeViewController ()
			if (createOnSelected != null)
				return createOnSelected (this);
			return new DialogViewController (this, true) {
				Autorotate = true

Contruction of new DVC should be something like....
return new DialogViewController (this.GetContainerTableView().Style, this, true)

Come to think of it Autorotate should probably be inherited too.

This can be customized via subclassing, I think this is fine as is or it would break current style assumptions.
