It doesn't seem that way to me. Decoherence is understood pretty well; although not every detail is completely worked out it explains our experience and the subjective appearance of collapse. It's just approximate though and hence we get quantum interference.

The reason you think it's incomprehensible is that a lot of smart people have trouble accepting what we called reality is only one of many classical "worlds". It's a philosophical concern; technically there are no major issues and it's not that hard to understand.

The reality of QM won't be commonly accepted until we find a way for people to accept that the universe isn't what they expected or we change their expectations.
