Yes, of course. However, I said "more people put the unDRMed file on the

perhaps more people will.

Apart from the fact that once the DRM is stripped no one else has to
know about DRM.
Most people sharing files on torrents are using the unDRMed version.
Once one person strips the DRM and starts to upload it, everyone else
can download and upload it without knowing what DRM is. This ratio can
be huge, 10:1, 100:1, 1000:1, theoretically 1million:1.
This is the ratio of people to the original uploader, not the ratio of
download to uploaders, it's only the original uploader who has to
strip DRM, all the other uploaders are doing is uploading the bits of
the file they downloaded.

There is bound to be one person who knows how to strip the DRM and
takes the time to do so.

Making the file DRM free may reduce piracy.
DRM free is a better product, it can be played in the users choice of system.

Why spend money on a poorer version when you can get DRM free data?
And as most people are not skilled enough to strip DRM themselves,
then their only way of getting DRM free music is to download it
illegally, until now that is.

Note that many CDs have some form of DRM on them.
