We're free in 3... 2... 1! Amazon unhooks its last Oracle database, nothing breaks and life goes on

Unfortunately, dropping Oracle usage in small increments over time doesn't result in matching savings. You have the cost of delivering and supporting the new RDBMS while Oracle license costs look exactly the same year on year as usage drops by 10/25/40%.

Oracle licensing may be predatory and avaricious but...actually there is no 'but'.
