In general, I agree with you, but I'm not sure that v.to.rast + 
r.to.vect would profit of r.thin in the middle, since v.to.rast already 
should provide a thinned line. AFAIU r.thin is useful when you have 
raster lines produced by something else than v.to.rast.

How about (untested):

if( (isnull(A) && isnull(B)) || (!isnull(A) && !isnull(B)), null(), 1)
