It was the same on a VW I had. The DRL relay also supplies power to the parking brake warning light when the ignition is on.
Do you speak from experience?

With the DRL's disabled, and the parking hand brake in the up/locked position, the brake light in the dash cluster DOES light up. Engine running or not, headlights on or off. When its in the down position, the lights off.

Weird that your is different.

Dissconnect the plug, and pull the DRL box out. Simple.

There is a slot on the side of the relay where a bracket slides in. First, push the relay in the direction opposite to the base of this bracket. This will remove the relay, and then it is just a matter of disconnecting the wires. When I did this I tried to disconnect the wires first, but unless you're 3 and have the hands of Tinkerbell this won't work, or it will work and you'll have busted knuckles. Either way, remove the box first.

Once you do this, do the lights on the liftback speedo still come on with the headlights off?

I've driven around with my lights off more than once in my Yaris because I was fooled by the speedometer light. I've never done this so many times in nearly 30 years of driving.

I am assuming you mean the green light that comes on when your lights are fully engaged. Without the DRL box, everything works just fine. When the lights are off, the green light remains off, and when they're on it comes on. What you're talking about is exactly why I removed them. Previously I drove a Cadillac for a few years with automatic lights, so I never had to turn them on. In the Yaris, the DRL's had me thinking that my lights were on at night when it was only my headlights that were on. I got pulled over the second day I had the car for not having my lights fully on and was given a warning. This happened a couple more times before I decided that even though I haven't bought HID's yet the removal was still a good idea. It was a safety/ADD issue.

Actually what I am referring to is the illumination on the speedometer. With that illuminated, I am fooled into thinking my headlights are on.

Does that stay illuminated all the time with the DRL's disconnected?

Gauge cluster performs the same with or without the DRL modual being dissconnected.

Not sure what year it started in the US, but it's not a "law" here to have to keep them armed.

Toyota has a few TSB's for their dealers to disable the DRL's on select models. Couldnt find one for the Yaris, so hence the reason for me sharing my finds with this post.

YEAH!!! I thought I was the only dope running around at night/early morning with no tail lights on! Several times I have got into the car all sleepyish after work, then I see my "head lights" so I'm not thinking they are not actually on! Exactly the reason I'm pulling my box too, before "The Man" gets me too
