Hi Kai,

the charter links are public :
http://www.w3.org/2005/01/BPWGCharter/Overview.html
http://www.w3.org/2005/01/DDWGCharter/Overview.html
and they are describing in details the work planned in MWI. There is no 
overlap with di scope but association and cooperation. both DDWG and 
BPWG are not chartered to develop new technologies but more to define 
best practices / guidelines for content authoring (BP) and to provide a 
database of device info to complement existing technologies (cc/pp and 
uaprof) to make them more useful for content adaptation.
a shortcut is tat bpwg and ddwg will be customers of technologies 
developed in diwg. they will also provide specific requirements.

this difference in scope would be reflected in the lists (i hope):
- discussion on how to author adaptable web content, what are 
specificity of mobile content, ... are going to take place on public-bpwg
- discussion on what to put on a device description db, how to access 
the info, trust model, ... are  going to take place on ddwg-public
- discussion about new technologies under development (eg di select diwg 
just published), or futur  are going to stay on www-di
- discussion about cc/pp is going to stay on www-mobile

does that answer your question ?
