Hmm. OK, I decide to fix es_EC with the change for monetary as "USD".
I contact to the Ecuador embassy in Japan
(http://www.ecuador-embassy.or.jp/), and the member of the embassy
staff said in 2000 Ecuador change their currency symbol from ECS to
USD. This web page also says now Ecuador uses USD, not ECS.
