Cruising Higher

I was just thinking about the increasing amount of traffic that has a service ceiling above FL410 and that there will be a demand for use of 420 and 430.

Can anyone tell me why RVSM currently finish at 410 and if there's any reason it couldn't be increased?

Altimeter accuracy not sufficiently documented?
