Thanks for the extra information, but I'm not asking about the impossibilities of total absorption. Just trying to focus on the spirit of the OP, which is whether light emission/absorption can change mass.

Is this an increase in rest mass? I'm actually not sure which mass the equation I gave is referring to.

What are some of the problems with using the relativistic mass?
