I would NOT use ACWX for my Total Intl replacement. Its avg daily trading volume is only around 300k shares a day so it's not out of the realm of possibility that this fund would get liquidated.
Morningstar has VGTSX as 83% Developed, 17% Emerging and 79% Large, 17% Mid, 4% Smalll.
I would use a combination of EFA (90% LC, 10% MC - 100% Developed), EEM (87% LC, 13% MC - 25% Developed, 75% Emerging), and SCZ (66% MC, 34% SC - 100% Developed) to replicate Total International. SCZ is thinly traded also but that should constitute a small portion of your holdings. EFA and EEM both have avg daily volume in the 10s of millions.
