Since you agree that the number of histories is on a continuum, you must
accept that no matter how large or small a segment of the continuum is
considered, the number of histories is the same. Hence measure is the same
for any observer.
The whole concept of "measure" is based on assigning different probabilities
to different infinite sets--the fact that two sets have the same cardinality
doesn't imply they must have the same measure. For example, any continuous
probability distribution used in statistics (the bell curve, for example)
can be used to assign a measure to an arbitrary finite interval (which
necessarily contains an infinite number of points), the measure just being
the area under the curve over that interval.
