GeoIP dependency on GeoIP Legacy databases?

A bug report originated on Debian [1] about the GeoIP module that's
shipped with NGINX's source code.

It makes note that the GeoIP database in Legacy format is not available,
deprecated in 2018 and discontinued as of 2019.  This means that
non-paying customers can't get the database files.  [2]

Does this impact the geoip module shipped with NGINX as the Legacy
databases are no longer available and discontinued?  If so, does NGINX
have a timeline to replace this or provide alternate mechanisms?
