I think you'll find that the Baruntse will fit pretty spot on with the same size as your Nepals, so careful on going a full size up.
I thought the Baruntse liner was lower volume than the Spantik liner (but could be wrong - maybe that was just weight) and from what I recall reading from Dane, they can shrink up to a half size when molded.
Problem I had with the Spantik's was the outer shell lacing - just couldn't get them tight enough to prevent heel slip. Baruntse's fit me really well, but felt huge and clunky when compared to Spantik's or Scarpa 6000's. I ended up going 6000's.
Molded and shrunken Baruntse 47's liners might just do the trick with your 46.5's Spantik's - expensive gamble though... I'd order a pair of 46's and 47's from Zappos or Backcountry - play around and return if needed
