    (let ((no-thrill (lambda (o c _) (or c (org-element-property :value o)))))
       :parent 'ascii           ;or `hugo', depending on what you mean
       :transcoders (mapcar (lambda (type) (cons type no-thrill))
                            '(bold code italic strike-through underline 

Five locs. Not bad either.

You're basically describing `ox-ascii' with stripped emphasis markers.
At this point, I'm not convinced we need this in Org proper.
