I wonder if it is ok to have both SQL Anywhere 12 and SQL Anywhere 16 installed on the same Linux server? Or have anybody noticed any problems with this? Or are there any special considerations that must be taken into account?

Cf. this comment by Mark on an answer from that (different) question "Can I install two setups of the same major version on the same box?"
So, yes, you should be fine with parallel installs of v12 and v16.
FWIW, it's also contained in the documentation's FAQ page:
Note, if you are about to use both versions in parallel regularly (say, running larger databases in productional usage), both database server instances will compete for the machine's resources, so you might have to specify reasonable cache sizes for both.
