As said above, there is a good argument to have both.
However, if it was a choice, or a preference (as asked) I prefer with DRM removed so that images can be written back to floppy without any special equipment.
A perfectly preserved thing that can't be used on the machine it was intended to be used on is pointless imho.
I've never understood the almost religious drive for perfect bit for bit preservation of something that can only be run on an emulator, which is surely a less accurate experience thus negating the point.
