Well. I'm still not sure why plain lists should have their own
indentation. In that case, tables, latex-environments, etc. should too.

Though, you can still configure what you want with an appropriate

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(add-to-list 'org-export-filter-plain-list-functions
             (lambda (plain-list back-end)
               (if (not (eq back-end 'e-ascii)) plain-list
                 (replace-regexp-in-string "^" "  " plain-list))))

I understand. 

You may want to test this advice, which will convert a table to tsv
if "#+attr_ascii: tsv" is set above the table.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defadvice org-e-ascii-table (around table-tsv)
  (if (or (not (member "tsv" (org-element-get-property :attr_ascii table)))
          (eq (org-element-get-property :type table) 'table.el))
    (setq ad-return-value
            (org-element-get-property :raw-table table)) nil))))
