d:DataContext and IDesignTimeAware

Unless I don't know what I'm doing or doing something incorrectly...

In VS2010:
Setting d:DataContext wipes out IDesignTimeAware. (tried many combinations, as well as DataContext="{x:Type local:MyVM}")
However, NOT setting it takes away designer intellisense.

Of course, one would ideally want both at the same time instead of having to continually switch between them.
Has anyone got any fixes, hints, tricks, shenanigans, etc?
