Default Reconciling Cabal Cosmology with Infinite Worlds

I'm trying to bring together the cosmologies of Cabal and Infinite Worlds into a coherent whole, and the best idea I've been able to form is that the various alternate worlds (along with their attendant planes, skerries, and what-all-else) all border the edge of what the Cabal knows as the Astral Realm, as opposed to only the Cabal "Homeworld", whatever that may be.

That said, am I forgetting anything from the (admittedly fluid) canon of either book that invalidates this idea?

I think that's the assumption. Perhaps check up on the cabal entry in infinite worlds?

That's what I did, along with some stuff from the Psionic Powers p27 description of the Astral Plane. You move from a corporeal world onto the Outer Astral. From there you move in an extra "direction" to the Inner Astral.

On the Inner Astral, you can move in ways that let you reach the entrances to other material worlds. There's also ways to move that take you to the Pearl-Bright Ocean and from there to the Iconic realm.

The IW sourcebook for 4e describes the Astral as touching all worlds.

Another reason getting lost in the astral is such a problem.
