Some questions regarding decoherence

You seem to be assuming that decoherence solves the measurement problem and describes the full way to a classical description of the system.
No, I don't.
Decoherence only describes the mean behavior of ensembles and not single state histories, so it's also not capable of describing the single system measurement outcomes we are observing.
... specifically the pointer basis is not specified.
Does that mean that there is
explanation for a pointer basis? where it comes from? construction of the device?
Any idea regarding question 2?
