The miniDVI article also makes clear that I should be asking not just about a "DVI" port on the projector, but about DVI-D in particular since DVI-I won't work
What will work will depend mainly on the projector: it may have only VGA input, where your only worry will be that you've got a Mac mini-VGA to VGA cable with the right bits on. I should guess that even if the projector has a DVI input, it has an alternative VGA input as well; then it will have at least a DVI-D connector, but I don't see why a DVI-I connector shouldn't work, as the input for the analogue connections just won't connected on the projector. A DVI-I connection is the least likely, as it requires both digital and analogue pins on the output and the input connection.

You can't expect anything but an Apple-designed port; a standard port would be usable with kit that wasn't made by Apple. It is a hardware maker after all.
