Yes, this is "normal." When my stock clutch was on its last legs it was near the top of travel on the return where it started to engage. As the Clutch wore, the engagement point traveled further and further up until it had no "noticeable" engagement point.
My new clutch started to engage about an inch off the floor. PAIN IN THE NECK! And now it's about 1/3rd to 1/2 of the way off the floor to the top of travel.
Firm, noticeable operation is a good thing, indicating minimal wear.
Spongy, muted, soft operation is bad. This usually means worn out components. It's more important HOW engagement feels rather than where it happens. It's not the most precise answer but having a strong engagement is the important factor. Pedal play sounds fine from what you described. Especially in regards to a 7/7.5 Gen Accord.
