30.4.5 [thread.lock.algorithm] says:
"If a call to try_lock() fails, unlock() shall be called for all prior arguments and there shall be no further calls to try_lock()."
We try to use "shall" for requirements on the user (e.g. as in the previous paragraph) which is absolutely not what is meant here.

This wording is relative to N4700.
Change 30.4.5 [thread.lock.algorithm] as indicated:
template <class L1, class L2, class... L3> int try_lock(L1&, L2&, L3&...);
-1- Requires: […]-2- Effects: Calls try_lock() for each argument in order beginning with the first until all arguments have been processed or a call to try_lock() fails, either by returning false or by throwing an exception. If a call to try_lock() fails, unlock()
shall becalled for all prior arguments and there shall beno further calls to try_lock(). […]template <class L1, class L2, class... L3> void lock(L1&, L2&, L3&...);
-4- Requires: […]-5- Effects: All arguments are locked via a sequence of calls to lock(), try_lock(), or unlock() on each argument. The sequence of calls
shallnot result in deadlock, but is otherwise unspecified. [Note: A deadlock avoidance algorithm such as try-and-back-off must be used, but the specific algorithm is not specified to avoid over-constraining implementations. — end note] If a call to lock() or try_lock() throws an exception, unlock() shall becalled for any argument that had been locked by a call to lock() or try_lock().
