I think it is adequate. I often use GeoIP, and is more than precise
for my needs, but I do value knowing I could use a more precise DB
with the same *free* software I am currently using, if need were to
arise. Similarly, we include lastfm (which is a free client for a
service which was recently freeish but not anymore). We include
several clients for services owned by different companies which might
have a premium version of their services.
