Interesting, I found this documentation which seems to contradict the documentation you posted:
Any scenarios not specified in the list above are not supported, including but not limited to the following:
Installing SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2017 on same computer (side by side).
It's about 2/3 of the way down the page on the section titled SQL Server 2017 support for SQL Server 2005.
