Jesse: I think that would be the alternative to spacetime substantivalism known as "relationalism" (discussed in some of the papers I linked to), it's certainly possible as well, I think if we had a complete theory of quantum gravity it might naturally favor one or the other (the way the relativity of simultaneity naturally favors eternalism over presentism) even though it might not totally settle the issue for philosophers.
