I would just leave it alone and concentrate on any other problems. Wait until you need to do a full rebuild. Since the compression is even on all cylinders, the heads are probably ok but perhaps the rings or cylinders are a little worn (evenly). You can dump a lot of time and money into trying to raise the compression 10 or 20 lbs and end up with no noticeable improvement, and prehaps break something along the way.
