I'm implementing a class library using Prism MEF. I have two shells created in bootstrapper, but seems like only one gets returned by CreateShell() and RegionManager can only recognize the regions on this shell.

protected override DependencyObject CreateShell() { 
	_shellWindow = this.Container.GetExportedValue<ShellWindow>(); 
	_shellDockWindow = this.Container.GetExportedValue<ShellDockWindow>(); 
	return _shellWindow; 
Is it possble for RegionManager knows about the regions in both shells?
