    I wouldn't call the measure distribution "uniform"
even for the AUH, just as the TM universal string
distribution (outputs of a random program; it's not
computable) is not the same as the uniform
distribution (random bitstring). The measure
distribution for the AUH is quite nontrivial even if
(in principle) it contains no information.
    That said it just sounds like you're talking about
a conditional effective probability, conditional on
some definition of "the observer". So I can't argue
with that because you haven't said anything
controversial above :(
