Perhaps including key frames would provide behavior.  Or providing a time axis on all geometry (I'll let you pick between absolute and relative time).  Perhaps however, there is another way to archive geometry and time besides the typical 4 dimensions.  What if your objects were connected with springs with a certain amount of stretchiness.  I am talking about is the 4 fundamental forces.  If your entire scene was stored as forces, what would that look like?  Is this being handled in X3DEarth?
