Silverlight: is TabControlRegionAdapter required?

In our Composite/Silverlight implementation we are using for the UI only Third Party controls.

The Silverlight Composite Library (v2/Drop 10) contains the TabControlRegionAdapter, which is derived from TabControl.
The usage of this control enforces the deployment System.Windows.Controls.dll with a size of 266 Kbytes.

Because we are using a Third Party tab control, the TabControlRegionAdapter is not used.

How we can extend the UnityBootstrapper to use a custom tab control?
How we can remove the reference to the System.Windows.Controls.dll?
