As an introduction, it must be made clear that there are indeed fine details on the subject of calling on someone other than Allah. Of course, not every call (نداء) directed to someone other than Allah is shirk (polytheism) in and of itself.
‘There exists NO religious prohibition for Muslims to ask lady Mary to intercede for them.’
One of the earliest biographers was Ibn Sa’d (d. 845), the great Iraqi Basran Sunni author of the Tabaqat.

Even if the Yahud and Nasara wouldn’t have worshipped ‘Uzayr & ‘Isa (عليهما السلام) they would still be idolaters for a simple reason.
إِذْ قَالَ الْحَوَارِيُّونَ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ هَلْ يَسْتَطِيعُ رَبُّكَ أَن يُنَزِّلَ عَلَيْنَا مَآئِدَةً مِّنَ السَّمَاء قَالَ اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِين
َBehold! the disciples, said: “O Jesus the son of Mary! can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with viands) from heaven?” Said Jesus: “Fear Allah, if ye have faith.” [Qur’an]
If إماتة was not from خصائص الربوبية than Ibrahim would certainly not have used it has his first evidence against Nimrud. He used it, because it is so clear to everyone that it is something only Allah has power over.
Ponder over the fact that his disciples (who witnessed his miracles) did not ask him to create, cure or to even feed them (with heavily food). They said can your Lord do that! They did not ask Jesus directly (despite him performing all miracles!) knowing that all his miracles are really executions of the will of Allah. Yet you have modern day mushriks praying directly to other than Allah under the pretext of ‘wasilah’ and ‘tawasul’.
