The argument of an infrastructure-as-code solution preventing cloud vendor lock in is the same as Hibernate (or similar) preventing you from having DB lock in. Fallacy, as you have so many other issues and factors for cloud/db change that the provisioning/querying code is such a tip-of-the-iceberg....

I think it's not that you need (or don't need) Vault - it's just you need a solution to externalize secrets from the codebase in a secure manner.
