    Is there a way to, in Shaderlab or ShaderGraph, specify a stencil value from a IComponentData with
    MaterialProperty? Is that even something that Unity's Universal Render Pipeline can instance?

    You can try writing to the SV_StencilRef system value semantic from a hand written fragment shader, and you can use a DOTS instanced property to determine which value you write.

    However, using SV_StencilRef in this way is an optional feature, and is not guaranteed to be supported on every platform, driver, or GPU.
