Containers with elderly to ancient Linux versions

Anyone tried this?

I have, or had, a VM somewhere with WordPerfect for Linux running on
Ubuntu -- but the last version it works on is Ubuntu 8.04. Having it
in a VM works but is not very satisfactory.

It occurred to me that an Ubuntu 8.04 container -- LXC, Docker,
whatever -- would be a far more elegant way of doing it.
