There is no denying that the 17mm lens is not quite as good optically as the 20mm.

Yes, and as I have stated elsewhere, the 17mm is larger and (on average) more expensive than the 20mm, while, at the same time, not as good optically.

This is why I (and many others) consider the 17mm to be an under performer. It performs less well, optically, than a competing lens which is smaller and can be, on average, had for less money. These are the facts.
