Is there a standard relationship between a bathroom sink and faucet?

last month

During a recent bathroom remodel, I had a new countertop with an undermount sink installed. The installer looked at the wall-mounted faucet I had ordered (but not yet installed) and decided to locate the sink 7 inches away from the front edge and 2.25 inches from the back wall. The installed faucet projects 7 inches from the wall--or almost 5 inches over the sink. As a result, whenever I wash my face, water from my hands drips all over the faucet.

I think the sink was installed much too far back in the countertop. Is there a standard location for this?

Is there a standard length for wall-mounted faucets, or can I find a shorter one?
