Unitary evolution has always implied that there is some basis in which there is no
decoherence. Recovery of a classical world must depend on (approximate) einselection of
special "pointer" states. So I don't think there is a transformation that gives eqn (2)
unless the system consists of time-like separate regions for the whole duration considered
- in which case they are already two physically separate "worlds" that have just been
represented together mathematically. I think decoherence depends on the *approximate*,
but not strict, separability of the interaction.
