So, in theory - if you vacuum seal one of these commercial "mres" in an aluminumized pouch with an O2 absorber, would that increase the shelf life?

The film on top is already identical to the one on the regular T-rations, so its already aluminized, meaning that its airtight.

As to your question - if the tray above will still be good. There is a VERY good chance that it will be edible. Unless the tray has any punctures (pin holes, cuts, etc.) or damage that compromises its integrity then more than likely the cake will be bad.
