Not at all: you're storing two iterators in the adaptor; I'm storing two
iterators. In fact, my latest suggestion stores the same iterators you're
storing, in the same places. There's simply no need to move the Base
iterator, since you can implement dereference() in the Policies class as:

    template <class IteratorAdaptor>
    typename IteratorAdaptor::reference
    dereference(const IteratorAdaptor& x) const
    { return *(*(x.policies().order_it_) + x.base()); }

The mechanisms which compute the default value_type, reference, and pointer
from the Base iterator type. When the Base object iterates over permutation
indices, you don't get any of that.
