While I /do/ understand you (it's the same with me, only that I'm more
comfortable with LaTeX), have you considered Org-mode?  It's
similar to markdown (though better IMHO), but it comes with great
support in Emacs.  And you get export to odt "for free".  (Also to
LaTeX, though unfortunately not to ConTeXt; OTOH, writing a ConTeXt
exporter should be fairly easy, and a simple exporter could be done in
a few days - the framework for writing exporters to different formats is
very well done.  Incidentally, there's also a Markdown exporter, so you
could probably get to ConTeXt via markdown).
