Yes I am linking the entropy to MW branching. So if you start with a low entropy state such as the Big Bang or having $1 million after a QS your entropy is going to increase. (There are many ways I could spend that million). The number of possible states you can reach increases, hence your entropy increases. You say that the Born Rule would fail if measure *increases*. Here is a counterexample: Using your own argument I could say that the Born rule would fail if measure *decreases *according to function f(t). For example it could be norm^2 f(t) . So using your own argument since the Born rule is only norm^2 therefore measure stays constant? I do not understand why you say that the Born rule would fail. Linking entropy with measure may bring some interesting insights. Let's see how far we can go with this.
