You can think that, but that is not the normal way people use those worlds.  I suggest that you choose different words instead of trying to blur important distinctions.

There is a very sharp distinction between what exists in our universe and what doesn't.

There is, however, a gradation of levels of confirmation for various hypotheses about what exists.  I suggest that you apply the gradation to degrees of confirmation, not to degrees of existence.
