I was asked for my opinion, so here it is;

Secondly, I think there may be a problem with your timeframe. Rahl's description of his move details how his swamp comes first, and then his genjutsu. If you defend from his swamp with Light weight rock technique, how will it also defend you from a technique that hasn't yet happened? As a result, your second technique would actually awaken the genjutsu, meaning you still haven't defended against it.
Finally, I am not sure about this, but I do believe your first technique wouldn't be a good counter to the swamp. I found your logic to be remarkable and I do agree that it seems rational that if you weight less, you may escape falling into a pit. However, there is a little snag you hit here--the pit is a swamp of mud that is trying to suck you down, not waiting for you to fall into. As a result, if you weight less, wouldn't it be easier for the swamp to suck you down? Also, proportionally to the weight decrease, your physical strength is also diminished, so you'd have less power to fight the pull off.
Anyway, that's it. This were my two cents. Jinbo, out!
