The answer, formally, is that the IRS has not yet issued any ruling on that problem, and so nobody actually knows whether that could become a problem.

The practical answer is that it is so easy to find alternatives that still have essentially perfect correlation, that it is not really worth taking a risk on it.

With most index, you probably could. With sp500, no, they are identical. Just switch to vti or vv

I wouldn't. Go with a total market fund.

Of course this works only for non tax advantaged accounts (does not work for IRA, 403b, 401k, etc.)

Don't sell VOO. Just keep DCA during this bear market. Take advantage of its discounted price. Time in the market beats timing the market.
