But what happens if UD doesn't go to the AAC and the AAC takes VCU and SLU. Now UD is left with a depleted A10 until the next round of realignment (which may not happen for a long time).

I don't see the downside with going to the AAC. If the AAC stays together, it's a much better conference than the A10. If it falls apart, your back in the A10 or maybe with Wichita State in something better than the A10.
Bingo! With a nucleus of Wichita State, VCU, and Dayton, there would be no problem in adding enough top level mid-majors (some from the A-10) to form a new conference or, at worst, go back to the A-10. And some of the top AAC teams would still be available. They're not all going to P5 conferences.
