What  "the law" says or doesn't say has very little direct relevance to

Which is exactly the point.
When extremists complain, the idea that we should respond, only opens the  
floodgates to the next *similar* complaint.  The prohibition that are  thinking 
they are under, affects all humans.  Muhammed is not special in  that way.  
The only thing that will happen, is they will shift their  attention from 
Muhammed, to some other religious figure, until their ultimate  goal which would be 
to suppress all human  representation.
