Macau and Hong Kong are pretty unique situations, the political and legal issues involved are more than a little complicated.
If other cities in China sought that type of autonomy that would basically be secession, Hong Kong however already was completely separate from China.
The other cities in China are historically part of the country and the leaders of those cities are part of the state party. If they had such ideas contrary to party policy, they obviously wouldn't be high ranking CPC officials in the first place.
