Yes. Security/safety is another consideration for me. I'm assuming your concern is related to not wanting all your ISA eggs in one basket.
Barclays is(*) one of three brokers that I have my core HYP holdings split across. Now that we are told that Barclays will be offering free transfers out it is tempting to simply split the Barclays holding between my two other brokers and end up with a two way rather than three way split and then hope that some huge fee hike doesn't happen with my remaining two brokers but I really do feel more comfortable with a three way split so I'm not sure if I'm going to go down that route.
(*) When I previewed my post I saw that I had initially typed "Barclays was one of three brokers...". Clearly I am not in the slightest bit conflicted about whether to move if I'm already thinking of them in the past tense.
