Does anyone know if it is possible to get the UI control object out from UIExtensionSites? For example, I've added a menu strip to the UIExtensionSites, I'd like to get the strip instance from a separate module so I can do merge. Is this possible?

Extension sites do not currently offer any mechanism to retrieve the thing they're wrapping.

Thanks... Is this a feature that might be included in any future releases?

I don't know what the P&P's plans are, but you can do what we have done and use the extension sites as an entry point for custom manager services. Currently in our project, we have MenuManagerService, ToolStripManagerService, and StatusBarManagerService. The UIExtensionSites serve only to decouple the manager services from the shell.
