+1, gm10. To me, the beauty of Linux/UNIX is that we can try out new software without impacting the base system at all. Need a newer library? Build it yourself and point your software to it. Flatpaks (and Snaps, for that matter) just give us an easy way to do this.
If it's about testing in a separate environment, don't forget to mention chroot.
