Only by counting the various outcomes in a particular world, this one or any other. But there's no assurance based on the SE and your interpretation of it, that guarantees an ensemble of measurements in ANY world. You need something in addition; call it what you like.

But you've admitted that no such ensemble can exist in any world. Case closed.
