shopping lens lacks an icon in the dash

Bug Description

the shopping lens does not appear to have a separate lens area in the dash, it only responds to active_global_search changes and there isn't a way to just concentrate on searching for shopping items. This is confusing because it breaks the principal that every lens has an icon in the dash and some lenses also respond to global queries and populate results in the home lens. If there is to be a control for the user to select which lenses and scopes are allowed to listen to active_global_search changes and the user wants to turn off the shopping lens from listening to global search they would have no way to get to a shopping lens and send it an active_search query.
