What a pity diachronic sounds so bad.

The word diachronic is perfect for a use I have in mind to do with describing how schemata evolve over time. It is related to a hobby horse of mind to do with the entropy of schemata and the phenomenon whereby schemata become less and less potent over time thanks to modifications.
