Thanks for your feedback and I understand, but going through the hard work to create the data assets inventory, without a place to manage, curate, and provide reasonable consumer access does not allow the ability to create the processes to execute the data management practices of which the Governance program should be implemented to manage.
If you attempt a Data Governance 2.0 bottom up program I struggle to see how a very small team can get traction with working with the assets and processes to execute without a unified toolset. I am thinking the WHAT has to be defined early with the HOW so that it can be managed in an iterative timely manner. Also you don't have to spend the time to reengineer the metadata and processes later, which can considerable.
Anyway that's my one cent's worth.
