I need to ask a couple of questions about MWI dominance of AUH below.

Can it be argued that the "simplicity" (of QM interpretation, computational
implementation) of MWI gives it a larger measure among other possibilities? Or
is it the large number of worlds generated by MWI splittings that would do this?
