I wouldn't call proposing the existence of multiple "worlds" "using different ordinary language verbiage".
Well, it doesn't change any of the math or any of the physical predictions, so what else can it be?

The ontological differences proposed by the various interpretations
Have no testable consequences, since they don't lead to any change in the predictions of the theory. To me, that means they're just "ordinary language verbiage", and any philosophical baggage associated with them (like the heavy-duty connotations of the phrase "ontological differences") is a matter of personal opinion and preference, not physics.
