Dear Tom,
adding to Christian Lehmann's (quite obvious) comment: when I read your only criterion - "The only criterion is that the items in question allow for both past and future interpretations of the clauses they appear in (the choice between the two depending on non-linguistic or grammatical context), while a present interpretation is generally not possible" - it seems that any adverb or clause connective marking sequence (or anteriority, posteriority) would fit, such as, e.g., Germ. dann 'then', danach 'after (that)'.

German examples include some adverbs like einmal, (der(mal))einst, all meaning 'one day, at one point in time'.
