Just so we're clear here... I'm not talking about a board tap to feed audio into your cameras - that only affects you and there are other ways to get this.

But the entire venue is depending on that DJ for the projection sound and I seriously doubt he's willing to take that kind of heat should he refuse. (I've never seen it).

If this is your experience then you certainly can blame him as this is pretty common and he should be ready for it at every gig if needed. Of course I wouldn't rely on his expertise to pull it off but at least his willingness to accomodate shouldn't be the issue here.

Oh, yeah, I'm referring to using the audio tap for projection purposes. Even so much as tapping to dj/band audio to get an audio feed to cameras....I don't do that anymore, unless I know the vendor, as a lot of contracted people don't seem to know how to use their own equipment. For projection audio, I'll either bring a pair of JBL speakers (don't know the model# offhand) or a Bose system - small, easy to setup, and works great. And, I don't have to worry about any issues.
