The % distances of all the 22 Shrutis from Shadja are actually the % distances within the 7 Natural notes ! (Refer to following table) 
Table showing that the % distances of all 22 Shrutis from Shadja are actually the % distances within the 7 Natural Swaras! 

For example, if we consider R at 112.5 as 100, M at 133.33 comes at 118.51.
Thus, 17 Shrutis as shown above are also based only at % distances between natural Swaras.
It can be seen that 2 positions of the same swara have appeared here, namely
Very interestingly, the ratio between all these is 1.0125! This has to be therefore the ratio in all other missing Shrutipairs (r1r2, G1G2, m1m2, d1d2 and N1N2) also. And in fact, it is so! As we know now, this value of 1.0125 is the ratio of "Pramana Shruti". Thus, one and all the % distances of 22 Shrutis from Shadja are actually found between the 7 "Natural" Swaras.
