We introduce the notion of W-measurable sensitivity, which extends and strictly implies canonical measurable sensitivity, a measure-theoretic version of sensitive dependence on initial conditions. This notion also implies pairwise sensitivity with respect to a large class of metrics. We show that nonsingular ergodic and conservative dynamical systems on standard spaces must be either W-measurably sensitive, or isomorphic mod 0 to a minimal uniformly rigid isometry. In the finite measure-preserving case they are W-measurably sensitive or measurably isomorphic to an ergodic isometry on a compact metric space.
