It would be good to have file templates for creating a new Android Service and/or a new Android IntentService in MonoDevelop and Visual Studio, pre-decorated with the ServiceAttribute and with a stub implementation of the various lifecycle methods.
We need a sample to convert to templates, bouncing over for now.
Either of the ServiceSamples could be used as a reference for this, and there are plenty of other examples in monodroid-samples.
Fixed in version 184.108.40.206 (master)

As per comment (4) and (5), I am closing this issue as I can see android template 'Broadcast Receiver' template in Add > New File Dialog
XS Version 6.2 (build 211)
I am updating the target milestone to Cycle 9 for bookkeeping accuracy. The enhancement was added to the master branch as per Comment 3. Cycle 9 will be the next release based on that branch.
I also confirmed that this enhancement has not been cherry-picked to the Cycle 8 branch.
