larger AF area coverage in future FX DSLR?

Are there physical/optical limitations keeping DSLR makers from extending their AF point coverage wider and taller?  If so, does anyone have any pointers to the technical details?

If not, could we reasonably expect the D6 (and possible future d860) to have greater AF area coverage?

Having switched back from mirrorless to a D850, that's literally the only thing slightly bugging me- the need to lock focus and recompose when I'm trying to focus on something slightly outside the AF area.

Thanks!

Nikon D850
