Can I do this? I don't see (or didn't see) any restrictions on licensing.
Your license to use Lightroom specifies two installations not to be used concurrently.
And if you own both 3 and 5, you can load both of them on each of the two machines.

“...not to be used concurrently...”
If I work on the desktop and then travel and have to use the laptop, is that considered concurrent use? If so, it is ill-considered.
No, that isn't what concurrent means. It means that the same version cannot be used on both computers at the same time. In other words, you cannot be using the laptop while someone else is using it on the other computer.
Perhaps simultaneously would be a better word...
I know the meaning of the word “concurrent” as in “contemporaneous.” I wanted your interpretation of it.
