Anywhere from 72 to 80 inches is "normal". There is no code on the matter, so feel free to do whatever pleases you.

A word on wall sconce boxes...
Many wall sconces will not cover a 4" round box, and most won't mount properly on a rectangular wall box. Use a 4" round box with a 4" x 3-1/4" mud ring so that you have a 3-1/4" hole in the drywall. All sconces will cover a 3-1/4" hole. Better yet, use Arlington's new "sconce box". http://www.aifittings.com/whnew83.htm
