How does "separating the layout model from the view controls" help PRISM Integration?

Congratulations on the new release!

In that release there is a bullet point that says:

The layout model is now completely separated from the view controls; integration with frameworks like PRISM is easier and faster.

I use PRISM, but I am not sure how this helps me.  I have a work around where my ViewModel holds my prism region in memory.  (If you are interested, you can see an example in this post.)

But if there is a better way I would like to use it.

If you have time, I would love to see a small writeup on how separating the layout model from the view controls helps me use PRISM.
