I've had good ferments without a krausen, although I haven't use 1007. I have a starter of London Ale yeast working and no krausen. It will be interesting to see if the porter it goes into forms a krausen or not. I'd suspect too many oils or possibly the style just doesn't form much head.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
