This is desired behavior.  There's no reasonable way for monodroid to know
which parts of AndroidManifest.xml to keep vs. overwrite from the code, so the
current "priority" order is:

  1. monodroid command-line args (e.g. --application)
  2. Template AndroidManifest.xml contents
  3. Source code attributes

For example, what if we changed your example so that MyApp [Application]
attribute used "@string/app_name2" instead of "@string/app_name" for
ApplicationAttribute.Label?  Which should be used, the [Application] value or
the AndroidManifest.xml value?  As per the above priority list, we use the
AndroidManifest.xml value.

Exactly; if attributes are not flexible enough for your needs, then simply use
the XML directly.

You might also consider filing bugs so we can add additional attributes to
remove the need to modify the XML directly.
