That is correct. Published workbooks aren't as responsive as workbooks on a local drive. Load times are different, so animation could look pretty awful, with lots of jerky, stuttering animation. So T didn't put it in the published version. There's an Idea out there you can vote for, but I doubt this will change anytime soon.

You could create this with pages still and allow the user to see the history with 'show history' and then use fine lines some thing that won't dominate the view but will add to it. It wont be playable of course but they still can select and drag their end point along the slider there and see how things have changed over time by allowing them to see the historical data as well.
