What is the evidence that ISIS was expelled for being too brutal? Most of the news articles seem to draw that conclusion, but AQ's statement makes it sound more like a political issue, that they weren't getting buy-in from other radical groups and the AQ high command before making decisions. It seems unlikely that AQ would expel them just for the tactics you cite, since AQ has used all these tactics themselves in the past.
