How can I create a custom world file for data driven pages via python?

I'm exporting DDP as jpg images and I'd like to essentially create a custom world file for each page (I would need the N,S,E&W data frame midpoints in DMS). It's easy to get those values on my layout via dynamic text but I'd really like to have the coordinates readily available as text. Has anyone done this? Can I simply grab these data frame parameters for each page during the export process and write them out to a file?

At the end of the day what I really want to do is drop these images in google earth and save as a KMZ. The caveat is that images can be no more than 1mp each so I need to tile all of my areas of interest then import to GE and georeference in that environment. Having the coordinates of the image extents makes it much easier to georeference the images in google earth (copy/paste). Alternate questions, is there an easier workflow that I'm missing?
