SetNavigationRule does not ResolveExplicitRules
When calling SetNavigationRule on a User Widget at runtime after the user widget is constructed and setting a navigation rule to Explicit and providing a widget name, the navigation data for that widget is never fully updated as ResolveExplicitRules does not get called and thus there is no explicit widget reference to navigate to.
This makes it impossible to set explicit navigation rules at runtime as the only time ResolveExplicitRules is called is during the construction or template initialization of a widget.
