When creating a new Android project using Visual Studio 2017 and Xamarin for Android v4.7.0.827, there are no default icons in the Resources/mipmap- folders or on disk. In contrast, Visual Studio for Mac does include de

When creating a new Xamarin.Android solution, there should be a default icon file named `Icon.png` in the following folders:

* Resources/mipmap-hdpi
* Resources/mipmap-mdpi
* Resources/mipmap-xhdpi
* Resources/mipmap-xxhdpi
* Resources/mipmap-xxxhdpi

Steps to Duplicate:
1. Start Visual Studio 2017.
2. File > New Project
3. Select the Visual C# > Android > Blank App (Android) template, click okay.
4. Look at the Resources/mipmap-* folders in the Solution Explorer; they are empty.
5. Look at the mipmap-* directories on disk; they are empty.
