It's a convenient feature, though Chromecast can't turn the TV back off yet.

So if it supports HDMI CEC why doesn't the Xbox One or a Blue Ray player do it why they are turned on?

They don't implement that function. It is up to the manufacturer to do so. There are requests all over the internet regarding xbones lack of that specific function.
Kenneth, what is the frequency? Set a fire for a man, and he will stay warm for a night. Set a man on fire, and he will stay warm for the rest of his life.

Actually the Xbox one can turn your TV on and off just Google it.

It can turn on the TV also by using the ac power adapter and setting the TV to the corresponding HDMI output of the chromecast.

PS4 does, Xbox One is already the biggest failure since Virtual Boy so no surprise there

Actually NORCALkID sparked my interest in googling about the Xbox One and its abilities. Needless to say I have my Xbox One now turning on and off my TV and my receiver. It can also do the volume on the TV, but I put my Xbox sound through my receiver. TV just can't match the receivers 1200watts.
